Individuals who were at this location during the specified time must immediately self-isolate and contact HealthLine 811, their physician or nurse practitioner to arrange for a COVID-19 test, even if asymptomatic (have not developed symptoms).

In order to keep everyone in SHA care spaces safe during this time, family presence/visitation is being restricted to Level 3 at the Good Soil Long Term Care Facility.

This means that visitation is restricted to End of Life reasons. Examples include, but are not limited to: palliative care, hospice care or those who are at high risk for loss of life, dramatic shift in the functioning of a patient or patient unlikely to leave hospital.  Additionally, under Level 3 there is provision that one essential family/support person can be designated for all residents to assist with care if needed (self-care, mobility, nutrition & behavioural needs). This must be approved by the care team.

For now, this measure does not affect outdoor visitation.
