Update March 24, 2020:
In a continued effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and to protect some of our most vulnerable people living in congregate care settings, the Provincial Health Officer has communicated the importance of taking extra precautions as this time. In this regard, the Ministry of Health has made decisions and provided policy direction specific to Long Term Care given the emergent need. Legacy Senior Living as an Assisted Living Residence has received communication to follow those same policy directions as follows:
- limit visitors to essential visitors only (includes compassionate/end of life visits; ideally limiting to one visitor at a time per resident; and one visitor per resident, per day, where possible);
- limit resident outings from Assisted Living to essential outings only (such as medical appointments);
- temporarily suspend interfacility transfers (both across Assisted Living Facilities and to Long Term Care), except in circumstances of intolerable risk, until further notice. This includes the requirement to ensure clients’ placement on the wait list for transfer is maintained during the suspension of transfers;
- temporarily suspend admissions to Assisted Living Facilities from community, except in circumstances of intolerable risk until further notice. This includes the requirement to ensure clients’ placement on the wait list for admission is maintained during the suspension of admissions. See Provincial Health Officer Letter below to read in full.
