SickKids CCMH services under the stay-at-home order taking effect April 8

On Wednesday, April 7, Premier Ford announced that Ontario will be in a 28-day state of emergency/stay-at-home order starting at 12:01 a.m. on April 8 due to increasing variant cases of COVID-19.

As SickKids CCMH is an essential service, we continue to provide in-person service where necessary or requested (see our safety guidelines) and are ensuring all our clients have access to uninterrupted virtual services.

Here is a summary of our current levels of service:

  • In-person community visits will take place as appropriate but must take place in manager-approved settings where full screening and full Infection Prevention and Control measures are in place 
  • In-home services are provided virtually and through onsite in-person visits only 
  • Individual and Family Services are provided virtually with the option to receive in-person service when necessary or requested
  • Day treatment classrooms will continue as virtual until April 18 as announced on April 6
  • EarlyON and other Prevention programs will remain virtual 

We are reviewing the situation daily and will provide updates of any changes – please watch this space.

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. 

New client? Phone us if you need services – we are here to help. Call our intake at 416-924-1164 ext. 8708; we will return your call the same day or the next business day.
