Alberta's chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw provided an update on the most recent numbers of COVID-19 cases in the province on Wednesday and the government's ongoing response to the pandemic.
Hinshaw said the province would be amending some of its restrictions relating to long-term care sites to address residents’ quality of life and the negative impacts of isolation.
The doctor announced the following public health orders to amend directives for continuing care facilities: anyone with even mild symptoms must immediately be tested for COVID-19 and isolated until results come back. As soon as a case is identified, all residents in that unit must be tested even if asymptomatic. Any staff caring for an isolating client must wear personal protective equipment including glasses, masks, gloves, smocks. Continuing care staff must only work at one location; and residents of long-term care facilities who are not in isolation can enjoy outdoor visits with a designated essential visitor. All must wear masks and adhere to physical distancing.
