We continue to do everything we can to protect our Residents and those we work with.
The following precautions remain in place as work together for the health and safety of everyone. Each day we review our current plans and make immediate changes that we feel are in the best interest of everyone and as directed by Ministry of Health.
- Daily staff screening upon entry – with limited entrances to increase safety
- Limited visitor access – scheduled and where required monitored
- Modified activities – focusing on social distancing
- Community interactions – suspension of all community partnerships
- Dining – reducing the number of Residents dining at a single time to increase social distance
- Cleaning – frequent and increased cleaning of all surfaces following diligent infection control protocols
We are pleased to announce that our residences are open for friends and family to visit loved ones. Each Baptist Housing community has tailored visiting plans according to Regional Health Authority directives to ensure visits are safe for our residents, team members and you.
Please contact your local Baptist Housing residence for the latest on visitations.
