Resident COVID Vaccination Update

CapitalCare centres completed giving 3rd doses of COVID-19 vaccine to all residents who were eligible and consented to receive them. Read More.

Public Health Restrictions Remain in Place

CapitalCare continues to follow Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMOH) orders to protect the vulnerable people in our care. The following restrictions remain in place for residents/patients/clients:

  • Isolated or quarantined residents are unable to participate in group activities, including shared dining experiences.

Visitors, volunteers, service providers, entertainers, and anyone entering our buildings must continue to:

  • Be screened.
  • Wear a mask in common areas.
  • Perform hand hygiene and maintain physical distancing.

Outbreak protocols, single-site staffing and other measures remain in place to protect the health and safety of residents and staff. 

Visitation Reminder

Visitors are welcome to DROP-IN as long as you enter the building during our new ENTRY TIMES, which are posted on each Centres page. “Entry Times” 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.

Masking Reminder

Visitors are allowed to join recreation programs. However, visitors must remain masked at all times in common areas, refrain from eating and drinking, and stay with their loved one. Visitors should not be assisting with serving or assisting other residents at this time.  

Unless a centre is on outbreak, visitors can remove masks in private rooms or private visiting areas. In a shared room situation, the other resident/patient(s) must consent before a visitor can remove a mask and physical distancing of two metres must be maintained.

Face shields are available for visitors who wish to wear them and may be required at centres on outbreak.

Virtual Visits

If you need assistance to facilitate a virtual visit, please connect with the Coordinator of Volunteer Services at your centre or a recreation team member.

COVID-19 Vaccination

As of September 6, 96 per cent of long-term care residents, and 86 per cent of staff across CapitalCare centres have received both doses of vaccine. We continue immunizing residents and patients on admission if they haven’t yet received their first dose and scheduling second and third doses as they come due.
