Update to SIL Familes – April 29, 2021

Update to SIL Familes – April 29, 2021

Dear SIL Families,

We have received a new circular from the Department of Families that clarifies in-home and outdoor visits with this week’s new public health orders. CLDS funded homes that have one occupant only can continue with their designated visitors.
 
From the circular:

Out of-Home Visitation

  • The public health orders allow a person who lives alone to have one other person with whom they regularly interact visit their home. Given this, CLDS participants can visit the home of one person who lives alone if they regularly interact with that person and are the only authorized visitor to the home.
  • If the CLDS participant requires a support staff to accompany them during the visit, the staff is permitted to attend the home.

Visits to CLDS Participant Homes

  • The public health orders allow a person who lives alone to have one other person with whom they regularly interact visit their home. Given this, CLDS participants who live alone can have one person with whom they regularly interact visit their home.
  • If the CLDS participant requires a support staff to accompany them during the visit, the staff is permitted to attend the home in addition to the authorized visitor.

CLDS participants can also attend a gathering at an outdoor public place (i.e., not a private residence) of up to 10 people. If support staff accompany them during the gathering, the staff is included in the count.
 
Precautions also remain in place for residential care facilities, day services facilities, and community-based recreation and leisure activities.
 
We know this is extremely hard and are committed to helping in any way we can to ensure non-designated visitors are able to stay in touch over the phone, virtually, or with an outing at a public place. These orders are in place until Wednesday, May 26 but could end earlier if we all do our part in help stopping the spread.

Thanks for your support and patience!

Sincerely,

Samantha Chodirker
Senior Manager, Community Services
