A Phased Approach to Expanding Visitor Access – Updated Effective March 1, 2022
While COVID-19 remains a risk to the health and wellness of our personal care home residents, Manitoba’s high vaccine uptake and the decreasing level of transmission of the virus in our community are allowing for a phased loosening of visitor restrictions.
Within our facility, and across Manitoba, COVID-19 remains a significant area of focus and operational priority. We continue to take every preventative measure to reduce the risk of the virus to our residents, due to the increased risk of spread to residents in congregate settings, many of whom have pre-existing health conditions that put them at greater risk for severe illness.
We are very pleased to see the provincial situation stabilizing and look forward to once again welcoming family and friends for visits, celebrations and activities. Visitor access will expand gradually over the next several weeks and we thank you for your patience, cooperation and respect for the guidelines as they change. The timing of these changes may be different from the changes that occur in public settings and we will work to ensure you have up-to-date and accurate information about changes that affect visitation to our facility. Variation Between Public Health Orders & PCH Guidance FAQ
Our collective goal is to keep COVID-19 out of personal care homes wherever possible and to minimize spread within the homes for both the safety of our residents and the protection of our workforce.
As we continue with a phased approach to loosening visitor restrictions and in keeping with guidance from Shared Health, as of March 1, 2022, designated family caregivers and general visitors will no longer be required to provide proof of vaccination upon entry to Concordia Place.
Visits will continue to follow provincial guidance, including maximum number of designated care providers and/or general visitors, maximum number visiting at one time, personal protective equipment requirements, and screening for symptoms or exposure.
Mask will continue to be required in Concordia Place and a medical mask will be provided to designated family caregiver and general visitors upon entry. While masks will no longer be required to be worn in public spaces as of March 15, they will continue to be required within our home due to the increased risk posed by the virus to the populations receiving care. Physical distancing, hand hygiene and appropriate use of PPE also remain important tools in minimizing the transmission of the virus in our home.

We will make every effort to keep you updated on planned changes.
Again, thank you for your patience. We look forward to seeing you.
