Effective Saturday, June 11th, the Province of Ontario is lifting most of the province’s masking requirements, including on public transit. However, masking will still be required in long-term care and retirement homes and is recommended in higher-risk congregate living settings.
Therefore, CL-CH will require all Staff working in congregate care settings to wear surgical masks at all times when within 6 feet of supporting someone, including vehicles; to wear fitted N95 masks in a room when aerosol generated procedures are occurring and, when COVID-19 is suspected or confirmed. Such requirements will be in place until further notice.
In addition to wearing masks, staff will continue to be diligent in performing IPAC measures, as follows:
Active screening prior to going to work, as well as 2x during shifts, to include temperature taking. If at any time you begin to experience symptoms of COVID-19 self-isolate immediately and contact Public Health and/or your family physician.
Use of PPE
Sanitizing of common surfaces
