Covid-19 Updates

Across Baptist Housing our leaders and COVID-19 response team are continuously reviewing and responding to the information and orders that comes to us from our Health Authorities, Medical Health Officer and Public Health Officer. 

As of October 12th, all Baptist Housing team members, volunteers, and contracted partners are required to be fully vaccinated. In our long term care and assisted living communities full vaccination of team members and volunteers is under Public Health Orders and we are very supportive of this mandatory requirement. For the rest of Baptist Housing, we have decided to also make full vaccination mandatory for anyone who serves in our independent living and affordable housing communities as well as our offices.

  • Daily team screening – with limited entrances to increase safety
  • Masks - required for all team members and visitors
  • Visitor access – screened on entry  
  • Cleaning – frequent and increased cleaning of all surfaces following diligent infection control protocols
