Guidance for Community Visits in Independent and Assisted Living  

We acknowledge that we are only able to suggest guidelines around visits with family members of IL/AL. Please know that we are proud of continuing to provide a safe COVID-19 free community and hope that if you do choose to take your family member out for a visit that you follow recommendations that mirror those told to us by Dr Henry.

  1. Maintain 2 meters of separation during your visit
  2. Wash your hands many times during your outing
  3. Wear a surgical or cloth mask at all times during your visit
  4. Have your visit in the outdoors – it is safer than an area of recycled air indoors
  5. Opt for a picnic versus a restaurant
  6. If you are travelling by car, maintain separation by sitting in the back seat and keep the windows open if possible
  7. Avoid unnecessary outings to shopping centres and grocery stores

 

Limited Reopening of the Bistro

Tenants will be welcome to come to the bistro, where they will be served coffee or tea and given a wrapped muffin and fruit. Full sanitizing and enhanced cleaning of the bistro, will be done before, during and after the service hour. Days and times of service will be:
