Share this post:

Updated July 22nd, 2021 at 5:53 PM - These requirements will be updated to reflect the evolving situation and any new official measures.

 

The Government of Quebec has recently eased its health measures and we are once again happy to share them with you. These are the direct result of the ongoing efforts in which you diligently participate!
Before announcing the good news, it is imperative that you understand the definition of a protected person, explained in the table below. Note that the criteria to be met were determined by the public health authorities.

It is important to realize that satisfying any of these criteria does not protect one against acquiring COVID-19, but rather from the major complications associated with it. In other words, being duly vaccinated does not prevent contracting, carrying and/or transmitting the virus.

 

DEFINITIONONE OF THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA AT MINIMUM MUST BE MET
A person protected against complications related to COVID-19
  • At least 7 days ago: received a second dose of vaccine;

 

  • At least 14 days ago: received a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine;

 

  • During the past 6 months: has contracted COVID-19 confirmed by public health authorities (whether vaccinated or not);

 

  • After more than 6 months: has contracted COVID-19 confirmed by public health authorities, followed by a minimum of one dose of vaccine at least 7 days ago.

 

The easing of measures are in effect as of now in residences where no COVID-19 cases are suspected OR confirmed, both among residents and employees/workers.

 

Mask wearing and physical distancing

  • For residents meeting the criteria of a protected person, wearing a mask and physical distancing of 2 metres are no longer mandatory, both indoors and outdoors.
  • For caregivers/visitors meeting the criteria of a protected person, wearing a mask and physical distancing of 2 metres are no longer compulsory inside a rental unit.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Caregivers/visitors who circulate in common areas and/or participate in any activity must continue to wear a mask and maintain physical distancing of 2 metres.

 

Leisure activities

 

  • For residents meeting the criteria of a protected person, wearing a mask and physical distancing of 2 metres are no longer compulsory when participating in most activities.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to higher risks of transmission during choir, all participants must continue to wear a mask and maintain physical distancing of 2 metres (this includes activities with a singer).

  • The maximum capacity of 50 participants in outdoor activities and 25 participants in indoor activities is to be maintained (except for shows and bingo, which may host up to 250 people).

 

Cinema and place of worship

  • Residents who DO NOT meet the criteria of a protected person may still remove their mask in these areas when they are seated and silent.

 

Dining Room

  • A resident (or a couple living in the same unit) may dine with a maximum of 10 guests (caregivers/visitors). These guests cannot include other residents of the complex.

 

Reminder on health mesures

Please note that all non-residents (visitors, suppliers, employees, others) must use the main entrance only, in accordance with public health protocols.

Remember to :

  • Wash your hands when entering
  • Wear a mask when moving about
  • Sign the visitor register
  • Expect a temperature check upon arrival

 

Daily operations

  • Despite the current constraints, our teams are making every effort to keep leisure activities on the calendar.
  • In order to maximize the hygiene of the residence, the frequency of disinfection and cleaning of the common areas of the residences has been increased.

These measures will help us maintain a safe environment for all of our employees and residents. The collaboration of each of us is essential to our success.

For any questions, do not hesitate to contact the main reception of the desired residence.

 

Reminder: simple steps to avoid spreading the virus

  • No close contact, such as shaking hands or intimate greetings (kissing, hugging, etc.).
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use a hand disinfectant that contains at least 60% alcohol if you are unable to wash your hands with soap and water.
  • Refrain from touching your eyes, nose or mouth if you have not washed your hands beforehand.
  • If you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a paper tissue. Do not cough or sneeze into your hands. Dispose of all paper tissues in a garbage container (preferably one with a lid). When this is not possible, be sure to cough or sneeze into your elbow to reduce the risk of transmission;
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces regularly in common areas, before and after their use;
  • Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory disease.
  • Wear a face covering when appropriate or necessary, according to public health guidelines;
  • Follow these precautions diligently, particularly if you are travelling or using public transportation of any kind.

 

 

 

Please be advised that Le Groupe Maurice is monitoring the situation very closely and is in constant contact with the public health authorities in order to ensure that best practices are adopted and complied with.
