On the recommendation of public health authorities, the Quebec government has announced that, as of Thursday, the government will allow caregivers to go and help a loved one in a CHSLD.

The Director de la Santé Publique du Québec, Dr. Horacio Arruda:

These caregivers must meet certain conditions, including:
- Be known by the managers of the establishments;
- Have passed a test for COVID-19 and have no symptoms;
- Wear personal protective equipment;
- Take care of a single resident;
- Keep a distance of 2 meters from employees and other residents.

Note: visits are still prohibited.

Dr. Arruda also asked that the families of seniors living in CHSLDs, who will not be eligible as caregivers, be patient with the staff of the institutions and the limits that will be imposed.

e

The government has indicated that 95% of establishments are able to communicate with families. The Prime Minister has set a target of 100% and has requested that there be at least one person designated to contact for families in each facility.
