Update June 30, 2020

On June 30, 2020, the Ministry of Health and Provincial Health Officer announced changes to the visitor policy for Long-Term Care and Assisted Living homes to allow a single designated visitor. Before this can happen, all sites must have written plans in place outlining how they will meet the requirements and precautions to ensure the safety of residents, staff and visitors.

We hope to have all plans completed by mid-July. Please ensure you check with the facility before visiting to familiarize yourself with updated visitor protocols.
