July 13 Update

Good afternoon, everyone,

Effective today, July 13th, the Visitor Restrictions have been lifted by Public Health.  This means that anyone can visit Emmanuel Home, and residents no longer need to assign that DSP role to specific people.

Please note, though, that the following restrictions will still remain for the time being:

  1. Visitors must continue to wear masks in common areas
  2. Staff and contractors are required to continuously wear a mask, unless they are working in an office, alone
  3. All staff and visitors must go through the same screening at the front door.
  4. High-touch surfaces in the common areas will be cleaned twice daily
  5. If there is a positive COVID-19 case, Outbreak Procedures would still need to be enacted immediately.

Please see the attached document from Public Health that outlines this latest step.

Also, and most importantly, please do continue to be vigilant in monitoring your own symptoms and risk levels.  If you have any inkling of a concern, please put off your visit for a few days!

Let me know if you have any questions!

In His grip,
