The province has lifted the remaining provincial masking requirements as of June 11, 2022. However, the Ministry of Health has provided COVID-19 guidance for health care entities, including community mental health.
The Garry Hurvitz Centre for Community Mental Health at SickKids is an essential health care service and we are committed to the safety of our staff and clients. COVID-19 remains in our communities. As such, we are continuing with our safety requirements which align with Ministry of Health and Public Health Ontario guidelines for our health care setting. These continuing requirements will help keep clients, families and staff safe:
- All staff and visitors must mask while inside our buildings
- Staff on community visits are required to mask when seeing clients inside and to adhere to our infection prevention and control standards
- Staff and visitors will be asked to self-screen at the entrances to our buildings
- Staff and visitors are encouraged to perform regular hand hygiene
- Visitors should maintain physical distancing from those outside their households while indoors
For more information on COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines, please refer to the COVID-19 City of Toronto site. If you have any questions about your care, please ask your clinician.
