BC Health Minister Adrian Dix and BC Medical Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry announced changes to Assisted Living and Long Term Care Guidelines related to COVID -19, on Tuesday June 30, 2020.
Over the next 7 to 10 days, they have asked these Care Providers to prepare written safety plans to facilitate single designated visitors to single designated areas at Care Providing Sites.
As a result, we will be working to address their requirements as quickly as possible. We know that residents and families are eagerly awaiting this opportunity, and as soon as more detailed information is available, including the status of Sites and their readiness to safely receive visitors, we will share that information with you directly by email.
