COVID-19 Protocols

Like everyone else, we continue to adapt our programs and our response to the rapidly-changing circumstances from the COVID-19 pandemic. We are fortunate to continue to operate many of our programs, but we continue to make adjustments in our delivery as the pandemic evolves.

Our top priority is, and will always be the safety of our participants, families and staff.

Updated: October 18, 2021

Effective November 29, AdaptAbilities will require employees, contractors, on-site partners and volunteers to be fully vaccinated unless there is an exemption on the basis of a protected legal ground or medical exemption. An individual can also participate in regular rapid testing to verify that they are COVID-19 negative.

CURRENT PRACTICES FOR PROGRAMS

Updated August 31, 2021

  • Daily health screening for team members and participants including temperature checks (no temperature checks In-Home).
  • Daily sanitizing of all high touch areas in all sites.
  • Wearing a mask at all times when indoors in all sites.
  • As always, team members will stay home if they are unwell/have a fever.
  • In Home: In light of rising case numbers and the current rate of COVID-19 infections in Edmonton, masks must once again be worn In-Home.

RETURN TO SERVICE OR RETURN TO WORK:

Updated August 31, 2021

Staff and participants may be subject to a 10-day isolation period and until symptoms disappear. No in-person service will be received or delivered during this time.

We will continue to follow the most up-to-date guidelines set by Alberta Health Services (AHS), with respect to symptoms and isolation requirements. For more information please click here: https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/topics/Page17260.aspx#sign 

Staff and participants can resume services earlier if a test for COVID-19 returns negative and the person does not present any symptoms.

Anyone with symptoms will be asked to be tested and will isolate pending results.
