INDEPENDENT LIVING COMMUNITIES
In Bria Communities, residents are encouraged to maintain six feet physical distance from each other, practice good hand hygiene, and wear a mask when in a shared spaces or when out in public.
VISITOR GUIDELINES – UPDATED 01 APRIL, 2021 Over the past months, for the safety of our residents, our Independent Living communities have welcomed only essential visitors to our buildings.
We know mental, emotional, physical, social and spiritual health depends on maintaining close connections with those we love most. We’re also aware that to date, Independent Living residents have only received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccination, and many of those who are considered part of their ‘core bubbles’ are not vaccinated at all.
As we navigate these complexities, we are adjusting our visiting guidelines:
- Core bubble visitors are welcome to visit residents in their suites. Please don’t linger in shared spaces or visit with other residents or family members who are not in your core bubble.
- All visitors must check-in at our digital screening kiosk and complete the health screening questionnaire.
- Visitors must wear a mask and practice effective hand hygiene
- For indoor visits away from our buildings, follow public health gathering guidelines and maintain your core bubble of visitors.
- Small outdoor visits are welcome outside on the property. Please be aware of space limitations and hold larger gatherings in parks or green spaces.
- Residents are asked not to host visits if feel unwell in any way, visitors are asked to postpone visits if they feel unwell in any way.
DINING ROOM MEAL SERVICE has resumed in compliance with public health office regulations. Each residence is prepared to return to room service in an exposure incident or an outbreak.
CLEANING PROTOCOLS for common spaces and resident suites have been upgraded to ensure the health and safety of residents and staff. In the event of an exposure incident or an outbreak, we will increase these and adjust them appropriately in consultation with the Provincial Health Office.
RECREATION ACTIVITIES are limited to ones which can be engaged from 6 feet apart and focus on small group settings or serving residents at the suites.
EXTERNAL SERVICES like hairdressers, foot care nurses, pharmacy and home care workers are permitted in the building, providing they adhere to safety protocol required by their governing bodies. In the event of an exposure incident or outbreak these services will be discontinued until further notice.
