McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Monday, February 7, 2022

This is a McCormick Care Group update for Monday, February 7, 2022.

Beginning today, there will be a gradual easing of temporary enhanced measures in the context of the broader Reopening Ontario program announced by the province in January. These measures include:

  • Increasing the maximum number of designated caregivers per resident from two to four, unless previously designated before December 15, 2021.
  • Continuing the limit of two caregivers at a time per resident for visiting purposes.
  • Resuming social absences for residents who have had at least three COVID-19 vaccine doses.
  • Supporting residents with information about the benefits of limiting contact with others, including avoiding large social gatherings, following masking and physical distancing requirements as much as possible, and only being in close contact with people who have had three COVID-19 vaccine doses.

A family Zoom meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 8, 2022, at 6:30 p.m. to review the changes taking place between February 7 and March 14, 2022, and to answer any questions you may have. Details for the Zoom meeting were sent out separately on Thursday, February 3, 2022.

Have a wonderful day.
