Protecting at-risk Albertans from COVID-19

Government-issued public health orders to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including COVID-19, among seniors and at-risk groups for the following settings:

  • Hospice settings
  • Long-term care facilities
  • Licensed supportive living facilities, including seniors lodges and group homes
  • Licensed residential addiction treatment centres (under the Mental Health Services Protection Act)

Licensed supportive living, long-term care and hospice settings
Visiting policy

Expectations for visiting have changed. These changes will ensure we continue to protect at-risk Albertans while helping them remain socially and emotionally connected.

The changes include the expectation that operators develop a safe visiting policy and process in collaboration with residents and families. Other changes include:

  • Each resident or alternate decision maker may identify up to 2 designated family/support persons who are essential to maintaining resident mental and physical health.
  • Multiple residents may have the same designated family/support persons.
  • Non-designated family/support persons may be allowed to visit.
    • This will be determined by resident health and circumstance and the risk tolerance assessment of the site.
  • Designated family/support persons are not required to be present for visits from others.

Any visiting person with symptoms of COVID-19 or known recent exposure to COVID-19 will not be permitted entry. All visiting persons should know their risk of unknown exposure to COVID-19 and take steps to protect residents and staff including consistent hand hygiene practices, physical distancing and wearing a mask indoors.
