Caressant Care is committed to protecting the health and safety of our residents, employees, volunteers and suppliers and service providers.
In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to our residents and employees, Caressant Care is starting Active Screening for COVID-19.
The Active Screening process is based on our established infection control plans to prevent respiratory illness outbreaks like COVID-19.
Effective immediately - Active Screening will take place at the entrances to all Caressant Care long term care and retirement homes.
ALL employees and visitors will be screened at the front/main entrance.
Preventing the Spread of COVID-19
Our key preventative strategies for COVID-19 remain the same as our infection prevention and control practices for other respiratory illness outbreaks:
- Regular handwashing with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (if soap and water are not available);
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth;
- Good coughing etiquette (coughing or sneezing into your elbow or a tissue then throwing the tissue in the trash and washing your hands);
- Staying home if you are sick; and getting your flu shot. It is not too late to get your flu shot.
We again thank you for NOT visiting our homes if you are Ill. For more information please visit the Ministry of Health website: Ministry of Health COVID 19 information
