COVID-19 UPDATE – July 3, 2020
.
We trust that you all had an enjoyable Canada Day.
.
As we are all aware, the state of emergency has been extended to July 15, giving the provincial government additional time, flexibility and the necessary tools to safely and gradually allow more places to reopen, while continuing to support frontline providers.
.
All regions have moved into Phase 2 save and except the Municipality of Leamington and the Town of Kingsville, as they will remain in Phase 1 until public health trends indicate it is ready to move forward in this area.
.
In an effort to curb coronavirus, the Federal government has extended travel restrictions until July 31, 2020.
.
We would like to thank all families that have supported the initiative to be tested for COVID-19 prior to their visits. This requirement is a vital step in ensuring that we do not spread the virus in our homes, protecting our residents. It is also a positive sign to our frontline workers, showing them that we are all doing our part to protect each other.
.
Although to date it hasn’t been encouraged by the Ministry of Health, we as staff members will continue to be tested in the month July. This is just one of the many proactive steps that as a UniversalCare community have decided to take, adopting all reasonable measures to limit the risk of infection.
.
As staff, we will continue to wear appropriate face masks, safety glasses/face shields, limit sizes of gatherings within the home, practice physical distancing, mandate staff to choose one place of employment, increase cleaning of high-touch surfaces, and continue with active screening of all staff.
.
We thank all of our staff for their sacrifices and want to extend our gratitude to all of them for their continued leadership and commitment to our residents and home.
.
As of June 30, 2020, the Chief Coroner for Ontario and Bereavement Authority of Ontario have us to return to the previous local practice and process for LTC’s/RH’s and families selecting and contacting a funeral home. Unless there is an outbreak at our home, funeral homes will return to their regular processes for receiving deceased residents.
.
We remind all visitors that for all appointments, you are required to make an appointment so we may facilitate a successful visit or FaceTime session. We encourage you to do so well in advance as the requests have increased and our capacity to meet the demand is limited. On days where the heat and humidity is high, we will cancel such visits and make other arrangements. This is done with the intention to protect our seniors.
.
Wearing a mask, keeping 6 ft. apart and not being able to come into close contact are all mandatory, albeit difficult requirements with the visits. During your visits, please do not drink any beverages as such would require for you to remove your mask.
.
We thank you for all of your support, suggestions and understanding during this difficult period in our lives.
.

Our beautiful 16-acre northern campus in quiet Kleinburg, Ontario, is home to 160 of our community’s seniors. The living accommodations are comprised of six separate casas scattered over the expansive property, each housing up to 30 residents who share a living room, dining room, and bathing spa, to create a social and welcoming atmosphere. Our residents’ private rooms for retreating and visiting are also well-equipped and are of the highest-quality and comfort.

Upgrades such as heated floors, plasma TVs in resident’s rooms, our Piazza De Gasperis, or “town square,” a new reflective pool, bocce court, and chapel, make Villa Colombo Vaughan more than just a facility. It’s a home to 160 residents.
