May 29, 2020
As of May 29, 2020, Rosedale does not have any cases of COVID-19 on site.
Further Orders were received this week from the Chief Medical Officer of Health in addition to a letter addressed to all residents of continuing care facilities (attached) from Dr. Hinshaw.
We continue to restrict visitors from entering the facility unless it is for an essential need where our staff are not able to support. Please email requests to email@example.com.
Everyone entering the facility must be screened each time they enter. Our outdoor visits are going well, and we remind all family/visitors to wear a mask and maintain physical distancing during the visit.
Resident Access to Regulated Health Professionals (doctors, dentists, etc.)
When regulated health professionals are required to come into the site to provide service, this service must be pre-arranged with the date and time of visit approved by emailing requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When a resident accesses services off-site such as at the doctor’s or dentist’s office, the resident needs to wear a mask, bring or use hand sanitizer frequently, and utilize safe transportation practices.
Safe transportation practices within private vehicles include:
• driver and resident all masked;
• driver and resident to sit as far apart as possible, minimizing number of passengers in vehicle.
The CMOH Orders state “it is imperative that residents remain vigilant in their actions to protect themselves and others around them from COVID-19. Residents remain at extremely high risk of severe outcomes if they contract COVID-19.”
Residents who are not required to isolate are still encouraged (but not required) to stay on property, except in the case of necessity (e.g. medical appointments, groceries, pharmacy, spend time outdoors, employment, etc.) while observing physical distancing requirements.
It is recommended that residents not participate in unnecessary outings; however, should a resident choose to leave for reasons other than necessity, residents are requested to:
• maintain physical distancing;
• ensure safe transportation;
• maintain good hand hygiene,
• complete the health screening prior to entering the site.
If a resident is absent from the facility for less than 24 hours or is absent only for a non-COVID-19 related emergency department visit, they will not need to be placed on the precautionary 14-day isolation period.
Isolation will be required for new admissions from any location, when returning from a temporary relocation, when returning from a hospital admission, if symptomatic, had a close contact with someone who has COVID-19, or otherwise meet the criteria for isolation with a failed health screening.
Activities with groups of 15 people (including staff, companions) are now permitted. Physical distancing is required, and infection control measures will be maintained. We plan to start with lower risk activities such as exercise programs early next week and go from there. More information with dates and times have been posted. For any questions specifically related to recreation please email email@example.com.
We are pleased to announce our hair salons located at Rosedale Estates and Rosedale Manor will open for service Tuesday, June 1, 2020. Additional processes will be in place to ensure safety during the service.
• payment for service preferred through electronic funds transfer or cheque; if cash is the only option, exact amounts only will be accepted;
• staff and residents will be required to mask during appointment;
• hand hygiene completed before and after visit;
• enhanced cleaning and disinfection of equipment, workstations, chairs;
• limited number of residents with staggered times to ensure physical distancing requirements.
Further information will be shared with residents regarding specific processes in next day or so.
On behalf of Rosedale management and staff, thank you for your support.
If you have further questions or requests, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to respond in a timely manner.
