COVID-19 Safety and Protocols

Help prevent the spread. To keep other clients and our staff safe, we require that you follow current COVID-19 health measures. COVID-19 is a new kind of virus and scientists are learning more about it as time goes on. People who have it can spread it through things like coughing and sneezing. You can get it by breathing in tiny droplets containing the virus. You can also get it by touching a surface where droplets have landed and then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.

Some people may have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all and still spread the virus.

Symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Cough (new cough or worsening chronic cough)
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing (new or worsening)
  • Runny nose
  • Sore throat
  • Practice physical distancing. Keep a distance of at least 2 metres (6 feet) from others.
  • Practice good hand hygiene. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water after using the washroom, blowing your nose, or touching any communal surfaces.
  • Wear a mask in the building, office, and group room.
    No exceptions.
  • Temperature will be taken upon arrival using no-contact thermometers.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow
  • Stay home if you are feeling sick or anyone in your household or care centre is sick
  • No handshakes, hugging, or fist bumps
  • Do not touch your face (eyes, nose, and mouth)
  • If you are feeling unwell during your time in group, please let a staff member know

  • Access clients: It is your responsibility to have alternate transportation available if you become symptomatic while attending group. Access will not pick you up for a return trip
  • You are legally required to self-isolate for 10 days if you develop any COVID-19 symptoms
  • You are legally required to self-isolate for 14 days if you have returned from outside of Canada or had close contact with someone with COVID-19

Due to physical distancing measures, we will have a maximum of 6 participants per group. If you do not get into a group, we will offer you the opportunity to attend via Zoom (this is an online option).
