  • Essential visitors must take direction from facility staff and will be escorted by staff to and from the resident’s room or a designated visiting area assigned by management.
  • All essential visitors must wear a surgical mask within the facility, and practice social distancing of 1.5m

It is important to keep connected to your loved ones, especially during these difficult times. Please remember that there are several ways for you to connect with your loved ones each day;

  • Telephone calls
