COVID-19 Status Update

UPDATE: June 8, 2021

The Quebec government’s plans for deconfinement continue to move forward, and we have received a few changes to the directives for private senior’s residences while we remain in the Orange Zone. We also take this opportunity to share the changes when we move to the Yellow Zone on June 14. We appreciate your ongoing commitment to keeping the Grace Village Community safe.
 
Monday, June 7 – Level 3 – Alert (Orange Zone):
 
Family Caregivers - Visits no longer need to be scheduled.
 
For this week, only Family Caregivers may come for indoor visits, one (1) at a time. Family caregivers must be pre-approved by the resident or by their mandatary and added to the caregiver list. These visits can take place in the residents’ rooms inside, or in the garden or grounds of Grace Village. We must continue to limit the number of residents and family caregivers in the gardens at one time to allow for social distancing. Masks must be worn at all times.
 
Family Caregivers still need to arrive in clean clothes, wash their hands before entering, have their temperature taken, receive a clean mask, complete the screening form and sign in (and out). They do not need to wear PPE (ISO gowns, foot covers, and visors). Residents continue to need masks during these visits, whether inside or outside.
 
Regular Visitors - Visits no longer need to be scheduled.
 
Residents can receive regular visitors outside, up to 5 visitors at a time. Visitors will need to wash their hands, have their temperature taken, receive a clean mask, complete the screening form and sign in (and out). Residents must continue to wear masks during these visits and maintain 2 meters.
 
Outings including car rides
 
Families & Visitors may now take residents on outings – remember to sign the resident out with the nurse. Residents from Wing B must also sign in & out in their wing. Residents, families and visitors must continue to wear masks and respect 2 meters.
 
Volunteers
 
We are pleased to welcome volunteers back to Grace Village! If you are interested in returning as a volunteer or becoming a volunteer, please contact Danica Montgomery from the Recreation & Leisure Team at extension 5007 or by email at [email protected].

All visitors will need to follow the same screening process for indoor and outdoor visits including hand washing, signing in&out, screening forms, and having their temperature taken. Residents must continue to wear masks during these visits and maintain social distance.
