COVID-19: visiting long-term care homes | Ontario, Canada

From Ontario, Canada there are points of learning for those devising visiting policy, procedure and practice. The policy that long-term care homes must follow is to protect residents, staff and visitors and includes sections as follows:


Guiding principles

LTC home responsibilities

Types of visitors

Access to homes


Essential Visitors

General Visitors

Managing Safe Visits

Non-Adherence by Visitors

Accesibility Considerations

It is notable that there is a Ministery for Long Term Care. It works to ensure Ontarians receive access to the quality long-term care they deserve, in a safe, home-like environment when and where they need it.
