In response to guidance from the Retirement Home Regulatory Authority, The Meadows of Aurora has updated and strengthened its protocols to protect residents, staff and visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Protecting our Community Throughout COVID-19
The safety of residents is our number one priority. The Meadows of Aurora has strict procedures in place across our campus to protect residents, staff and visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes rigorous cleaning and infection control, the use of personal protective equipment and rules regarding the number of people permitted in our campus spaces (elevators, common rooms, dining, etc.).
Additional Precautions for our Most Vulnerable Residents
Visitors to our assisted living and memory care spaces are strongly advised to be fully vaccinated. UPDATE: December 22, 2021 – Rapid Tests are provided and completed for any visitor entering our supportive living spaces.
Our staff are required to be fully vaccinated. An employee who has a confirmed medical exception will be able to continue to work on the condition they agree to twice weekly testing in our onsite Health & Wellness centre. All new hires are required to be fully vaccinated. UPDATE: December 22, 2021 – All staff are required to complete a rapid test twice a week.
Visitors, Vendors and Volunteers
UPDATE: May 2, 2022 All individuals who visit our campus are required to complete active screening at our main reception. Depending on which space you are visiting, additional requirements, as noted above, will be followed.
When residents exit their private suite, masks are required in all common spaces throughout the campus. The only except is when residents eat in our dining room and coffee shop. Signage is in place throughout the building to remind residents, staff and visitors of the mandatory protocols in place to protect the community.
