Ontarians can now safely visit their loved ones on long-term care homes again.
Indoor visits on many long-term care homes in the province are given a go signal to resume yesterday after months of strictly closing its doors due to COVID-19.
All visitors are required to follow certain procedures put in place in order to prevent any risk of a potential infection. According to the Ministry of Long-Term Care, each resident can have two visitors at a time. Visitors will only be allowed to enter the facility if they confirm that they had tested negative for the virus in the previous two weeks.
Long-term care homes are also providing surgical or procedural masks to those visiting inside the homes.
