Feedback wanted on personal care home visits

The province is asking for feedback on design requirements related to physical distancing protocols, personal protective equipment, frequency of use and ways to support quality visits. A survey is available online.
Any person concerned about their exposure to or risk of having COVID-19 no longer has to call Health Links — Info Santé to be screened for a test. Anyone with symptoms is still encouraged to use the online screening tool to determine whether they meet the necessary criteria to attend a community testing site.
