COVID-19 INFORMATION

Tabor Village is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our residents, tenants and employees, as well as their families and friends. We have developed a comprehensive response plan in accordance with Fraser Health to minimize the risk of COVID-19 entering our homes and to deal with any outbreaks should they occur.

As of April 3rd, 2020, we DO NOT HAVE ANY confirmed cases of COVID-19 in any of our residences. We ask for your assistance and cooperation in ensuring that you understand and abide by any restrictions for the safety of everyone connected to Tabor. In times like this, it takes a Village, so we will get through this together!

What is Tabor doing to protect your loved ones?

SCREENING:

Staff are required to complete the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Questionnaire before they arrive for every shift. All staff are also screened on site by trained staff before and after every shift. If any staff presents with symptoms, they are immediately sent home to call 811 and self-isolate for 14 days.

ENHANCED CLEANING:

All staff has undergone extra education regarding proper hand washing. We have posted signage encouraging proper handwashing in every washroom, sink station and lunch rooms. We also have hand sanitizer available at every entrance, exit, and throughout the residences. We are following a two-step cleaning / disinfecting procedure in accordance with PHAC recommendations on all high-touch surfaces such as hand rails, door handles, light switches, desks, phones, counters, food prep areas, washrooms, elevators, chairs, tables, etc.

Step 1 - General Purpose Cleaner with Hydrogen Peroxide.
Step 2 - Concentrated General Virucide Disinfectant Cleaner.

Staff are working very hard to take every measure available to protect your loved ones. We greatly appreciate the teamwork and dedication we are seeing from all of our staff during this challenging time.

VISITORS:

We know this is the most difficult restriction for both residents, tenants, and families but it is also the most important. There are no visitors allowed at any Tabor Village residence until further notice, in accordance with Fraser Health and the BC Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry. If you would like to set up a video chat with your loved one, please contact Vanessa at vaparicio@taborvillage.org or 604-859-8715 ext. 116.

What would happen in an outbreak?

The outbreak protocol for COVID-19 is very similar to current protocols for influenza.

Enhanced cleaning and screening procedures would continue as already implemented.

Primary contacts would be informed immediately.

Fraser Health and the Provincial Medical Health Officer would provide direction for outbreak procedures.

Seniors with COVID-19 would be cared for and fed in their rooms by trained staff.

As always, significant health status changes would be communicated to residents’ and tenants’ primary contacts as soon as possible.
