COVID-19 Information

Updated Protocols

In response to the omicron wave, we have implemented a number of protocols for our sites to ensure we are protecting our beloved residents:

  • Increased use of staff and resident rapid testing, including enhanced daily testing for any staff member who is a known close contact of a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case
  • Isolation and testing of all symptomatic residents, as well as any resident returning from hospital or returning from out of facility pass
  • Reduced in-person visitation (see below)
  • Pastoral programming moved to online and Channel 716
  • Reduced numbers of in-person recreation activities

If you have any specific questions about your loved one, please contact their site directly.

Visitation Policy

In-person visitation at all sites is currently restricted to the Designated Support Persons (DSPs) only. If you have questions about whether you are a DSP or who they are, please contact your loved one’s site directly.

All visiting is restricted to in-room only. If your loved one is in a semi-private or shared room, only one DSP may visit at a time. If your loved ones is in a private room, a maximum of two DSPs may visit at a time.

Visitors are strongly encourage to supply and bring a KN95 or N95 mask when visiting (unfortunately, we are unable to supply them). If you are not able to bring one, we will provide you with a Level 3 surgical mask and face shield.

Visits must be pre-scheduled through Cubigo (see https://www.shepherdscare.org/family-portal/) and visitors must provide proof of full immunization, must not have had close contact with a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case in the last 14 days, and must not have returned from our of country in the last 14 days.

DSPs are still permitted to visit an outbreak site, however they must wear full PPE.
