COVID-19 Vaccination

As of November 1, 97 per cent of long-term care residents are fully vaccinated (two doses of COVID-19 vaccine) and 98 per cent of CapitalCare staff have at least one dose of vaccine. All CapitalCare staff must be fully vaccinated by November 30, 2021.

At this time, we are not required to ask for proof of vaccination to enter our centres; however, we are conducting a short survey to get your opinions on the matter. Read more. 

Visitors may continue to DROP-IN as long as you enter the building during our ENTRY TIMES, which reflect the times screeners will be present. (One exception is for family and friends visiting a resident at end-of-life. You may come to the centre at any time and use the buzzer to enter the building after hours.)

Effective October 25, all visitors are required to wear a mask at all times, including the resident room, regardless of vaccination status. The only exception is when there is a notable communication barrier. Visitors are encouraged to contact their care managers in these cases.

The safety and well-being of our residents/patients/clients and staff is our top priority. Please note the following guidelines:

  • Check your centre’s web page before visiting for any change in COVID-19 outbreak status
  • Check in with other family members and stagger your visits on different days, or, a day that is before or after the actual holiday date.
  • Limit the number of visitors coming into the centre at a given time. This helps us to maintain flow at the screening stations. Remember that all visitors must be screened upon entry.
  • If you are feeling unwell, please stay home, even if your symptoms are mild. 
  • Virtual visits may be an option at your centre. Check your centre’s web page for contact information or call main reception. Follow us on Facebook to see ongoing activities and pass on messages to your loved ones.
  • If you are feeling well and visiting a loved one this holiday weekend, please wipe down any food, beverages, and gifts you bring into the centre at the door.
  • Remember that visitors must keep their masks at all times and cannot eat or drink with their loved one.
  • Eye protection is strongly encouraged at centres on outbreak. Face shields are available at reception for those who wish to wear them.
