Today also saw Dr. Henry and Minister Dix provide some guidance on the loosening of visitation rules for long term care seniors/elders facilities in the province, allowing for the first visits since the Pandemic arrived in the province.
“Today is a positive day for all British Columbians. With the necessary pieces in place, long-term care facilities and seniors assisted-living residences can now begin allowing visitors.
British Columbians have flattened the curve, single-site staffing is in place and facilities have been given the additional resources to safely allow for seniors and Elders who have been separated from their loved ones to connect once again.
Like many other areas within our province, with safety plans and precautions in place, we can now slowly and thoughtfully move forward."
The full overview of the new measures for elders/seniors care facilities can be found here.
