Visitation 

Continuing care settings in Alberta continue to have COVID-19 protocols in place,  regardless of outbreak status, as the government moves forward with a three-stage plan to ease restrictions.

This means continuous masking, enhanced cleaning and disinfection, health screening upon entry, testing, and isolation when required continues in our centres.

When visiting, please continue to:

  • Wear a mask at all times, including the resident rooms. 
  • Masks should be well-fitting and high-quality to have the greatest benefit.
  • Only visit in the resident’s room and limit your movements throughout the centre.
  • Perform hand hygiene throughout your visit.

Please note:

  • Visitors who are close contacts of a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19 should not enter the site for 10 days from the last day of exposure to the close contact.    
  • Visitors who are sick or symptomatic with even mild symptoms of COVID-19 (including fever, cough, shortness of breath, runny nose, sore throat or loss of sense of taste or smell) must isolate for 10 days as per CMOH Order 39-2021 OR receive a negative COVID-19 test and feel better before returning to a continuing care site.
