Glen Hill Terrace and Glen Hill Strathaven
Effective Tuesday, November 7, 2023 enhanced masking in all Ontario long term care homes was implemented.
“Recent trends have shown a moderate to high level of community transmission of COVID-19 and an increase in COVID-19 outbreaks in long term care homes, with an increased risk of hospitalization amongst residents. It is projected that COVID-19 activity may peak in the next few weeks, around the same time it is anticipated that influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) will rise.”
Based on the advice of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, the following enhanced masking measures for non-outbreak situations in long term care homes are in effect:
• Requiring staff, students, support workers, and volunteers to wear a mask when in resident areas indoors.
• Strongly recommending visitors and caregivers to wear a mask in resident areas indoors except when with the resident in the resident’s room or when eating or drinking with a resident in communal spaces.
• If a resident in a shared room is uncomfortable with others removing their mask, homes are encouraged to designate a space to enable the roommate to have visitors without masking.
Enhanced masking requirements will be reassessed once the current COVID-19 wave and other respiratory virus activity have declined.
