St.Amant’s Health & Transition Services is classified as a Long-Term Care facility, meaning this decision will not affect the stability of our staffing.
We are confident in the exceptional measures already in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all of the people we support and staff. Staff screening, hand hygiene, and routinely disinfecting surfaces while also following the recommendations around physical distancing and Personal Protective Equipment will continue. It is also very important that all staff continue to self-screen and stay home if sick, even if symptoms are mild.
Manitoba Public Health and Manitoba Shared Health are continuously monitoring their policies and procedures and updating them as needed. We will advise of any changes as we receive them.
Again, I want to thank everyone for your continued support, flexibility, and understanding. The changing information and procedures is challenging, and we appreciate your commitment to understanding the up to date information.
