Resident/Family Outside Visits Starting June 1st/20   

We know that family are integral to the overall health, well-being and quality of life for residents. Balancing necessary preventative measures with maintaining the vital connections that residents have with family members has been at the heart of every stage of our response. However, while preventing the spread of this virus within our facilities remains a central priority, the likelihood that COVID-19 will be a part of our ‘new normal’ for a longer duration requires us to find a longer-term balance between preventative measures and the many benefits of ongoing interaction between residents and their loved ones.

Indoor visits remain suspended.

Off-property visits are not permitted given the risk to residents and to the facility associated with unknown nature of contacts, exposure and other required safety measures.

To book an outdoor visit call 204-336-4101 Monday – Friday between 0800 – 1600. All visits must be booked 48 hours in advance.

Guidelines that all visitors must follow are:

  • All visits will be Monday – Friday between the hours of 1300 – 1600.
  • All visits will be outside the main entrance to the Home.
  • There is a maximum of 2 visitors per resident during the scheduled visit.
  • All visits must be pre-scheduled and you will be pre-screened when you call to book your visit.
  • Screening of all visitors will occur, including assessment for symptoms or known exposure to COVID-19. No visitor shall be permitted if they have any cold/flu or other COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have traveled outside of Manitoba.
  • Visits will be a maximum of 20 minutes.
  • The visitor must adhere to the physical distancing and remain 6 feet apart from the resident during the visit.
  • Pets are not permitted.
  • Based on evaluation of risk as well as operational clinical judgement, the site may be unable to facilitate outdoor visits for certain residents.
  • The visitor is to wear their own non-medical mask during the visit.
  • To cancel a visit call 204-336-4101.
  • Due to required infection control practices, no food/beverages or other items may be brought to the visit.
  • Visits will be weather permitting. If it is raining your visit will be cancelled.
  • A staff member will remain in close proximity during the visit should the resident require any assistance.
  • Staff will stop the visit if physical distancing measures are not being met (ie: resident unable to understand and is mobile, or visitors disregarding guidelines).
  • Please remain in your vehicle until your visiting time.

Protecting the health and well-being of your loved ones and our staff remains our top priority.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we take every measure to protect you, your loved ones and our staff.
