Safely Moving Forward Through COVID-19

September 23, 2021

Vaccination Requirements

As we continue to navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we turn to guidance from Public Health and the Ontario Government to shape our Health and Safety Policies and Procedures, holdingthe best interests of our clients and their families, staff and our community, in mind. At Pathways, our safety protocols have served us well, and must remain a top priority. It is why our health and safety protocols have been stringent. It is why we advocated for access to vaccines for our team members. And now, it is why we have taken further steps:

Given the responsibility we have toward our clients, as well as our legal obligation to comply with the Chief Medical Officer of Health’s directive for Children’s Treatment Centres, the Pathways Board of Directors has approved a policy that all employees, contractors, volunteers and students (on educational placements) will be required to be fully immunized. Staff who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated will be required to undergo regular rapid antigen testing until fully immunized, or indefinitely, if an exemption is approved.

POOL- Proof of Vaccination

As per Ontario regulations, we will now require ALL Adult (18+) patrons accessing the Pathways aquatics facility for any purpose, to provide proof of identification and of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at the point of entry.Additional information can be found at https://covid-19.ontario.ca/proof-covid-19-vaccination.

Continuing Health & Safety Protocols

We continue to follow Health & Safety protocols requiring screening of staff and all visitors. Masks are required for those over 2, unless exempt. Our staff wear additional personal protective equipment as required. We continue to request that only one parent/caregiver accompany a child to the appointment. Physical distancing and enhanced cleaning protocols remain in place.
