COVID-19 Updates and Resources for Retirement Home Operators
The RHRA is closely monitoring developments related to COVID-19 and will post advisories and information related to COVID-19 here as they become available. RHRA’s primary concern is the health and safety of seniors living in Ontario retirement homes.
A list of retirement homes in COVID-19 outbreak and resolved COVID-19 outbreaks can be found here. This list is updated daily at 10:30 a.m. and the information is current as of 5:00 p.m. the previous day.
The situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. We know that elderly people are at highest risk when it comes to the effects of the disease. To this end, the RHRA is aligning its COVID-19 response with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to ensure clear and consistent communication and action. In this context, RHRA is clarifying its expectations related to implementing the following practices as part of the COVID-19 response efforts. We also encourage homes to review their infection prevention and control procedures and emergency plans to ensure preparedness. Both AdvantAge and ORCA have pandemic resources available as well that can be helpful in your preparations. The Ministry of Health website and your local public health unit website will have the most up-to-date information.
