Campus Updates

Unionville Home Society’s top priority is the health and safety of all who work, live and visit on our campus of care.

CURRENT UPDATE

JUNE 20, 2022 – SURVEILLANCE PRECAUTION

We currently have one staff member who has tested positive for COVID through community transmission. This staff member does not give direct care and has no contact with residents. While there are no residents with symptoms, you will see signs throughout the facility indicating that we are in surveillance.

At this time, there are no additional changes in our routines. Resident mealtimes and activities will continue. If there are any changes, we will let you know. This is a precautionary step and we ask everyone to be extra vigilant in your IPAC practices. Take care and stay safe.

GENERAL NOTES

REMINDER: MASKING REQUIREMENTS STILL IN EFFECT FOR LTC STAFF AND VISITORS

On June 8th, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health announced that as of June 11th mandatory universal masking requirements will be discontinued in certain settings, such as public transit.

Long-Term Care Homes and Retirement Homes continue to be deemed high-risk settings with universal masking to continue to be a provincial mandatory requirement for all staff and visitors until further notice.

Universal masking has played an important part in the prevention of infection transmission and we would like to also urge you to continue to practice all other infection prevention and control measures while visiting, including, but not limited to, hand hygiene, use of Personal Protective Equipment when required.

All essential caregivers and general visitors to long-term care are:

  • required to take a Rapid test, up to twice weekly, depending on the frequency of your visits

In the event of any changes to these directives, we will notify you.
