Designated Caregiver

Designated Caregivers are considered essential, and may continue to visit with long-term care residents, regardless of where the Designated Caregiver is from.

Medical/Dental appointments and sightseeing drives

Across the province, attendance at medical/dental appointments continues to be permitted. Designated Caregivers or other support persons may take their loved one to the appointment.

Sightseeing drives with Designated Caregivers, or in facility owned or leased vehicles continue to be permitted; however, no stops or drive-throughs are permitted.

 

Student Learners

Students are considered essential visitors, and currently, they are permitted to do placements in long-term care.
