Residents and Family are invited to attend a Telephone Town Hall meeting with Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Chief Medical Officer of Health and Dr. James Silvius from Alberta Health Services (ASH), to discuss the next steps towards easing restrictions in Supportive Living Lodges.
As vaccinations continue to be offered to residents and staff in these settings, AHS would like to understand what changes to restrictions would make the most impact to residents. Although COVID-19 will continue to remain a risk, and there are many unknowns about the protection the vaccine affords, there is a commitment by AHS to timely and informed updates to the public health orders that impact the lodge.
Residents and Families provided critical input into the Safe Visiting Policy (CMOH Order 2-2020) last June / July and are now welcome to provide thoughts on the path forward.
