The Ministry defines essential visitors as those visiting residents at end of life, or very ill. If you are an essential visitor, you will be greeted by a staff member at the front entrance and asked a series of COVID-19 screening questions before entering the home. We also require that you will sign in and out of the home for each visit and provide a contact phone number to follow up if needed.
