Dr. Deena Hinshaw is also asking for your continued vigilance at this very precarious time. Specifically,

Of residents, the CMOH is asking that you:

  1. Avoid going out of the centre when there is not a critical need
  2. Observe site rules for indoor and outdoor activities
  3. Reach out to your centre contacts for support if ongoing restrictions are causing you distress.

Of family members, the CMOH is asking that you:

  1. Continue to connect with your loved one(s) through telephone and other technologies

Of DSPs, the CMOH is asking that you

  1. Evaluate your need to be physically present at the centre (based on resident need)
  2. Connect with the person you are supporting by telephone and other technologies whenever possible
  3. Follow our Safe Visiting policy and practices when at the centre
  4. Follow public health guidance to minimize your risk.

If you must come to the centre, please ensure you:

  4. limit physical contact with the person you are supporting, and ensure physical distancing whenever possible,
  5. limit your movements in the centre. Please go directly to your resident’s space and remain there for your visit.
