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.

*Donations to the Tabor Village COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund will go towards supporting increased safety measures, resident wellness and recreation programs, additional equipment needs, and staff encouragement programs.

Thank you so much, most particularly for your loving care of our Mom.  Even with this COVID scare, my trust for you is complete.  It is mind numbing only in that, not an iota of worry about Mum & how she is doing is ever an issue.

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 for testing and self-quarantine until test results come in.

DELIVERIES & CARE PACKAGES:

We are unable to accept deliveries of any PERISHABLE food for residents or staff at this time. If you would like to bless our staff with a meal or goodies, please donate through our website with a note stating your intention for the donation. We will make sure that the food is purchased and delivered in a way that protects our staff and residents. Flower deliveries are acceptable as long as they are in a hard surface container that can be sanitized and is not expected to be returned. Flowers will be held in the main office for a minimum of 24 hours to prevent the spread of possible contamination. Deliveries of personal care items once a week are allowed, however they will be held in the office for a minimum of 24 hours before being distributed to residents. Please allow for this extra time in your planning. Please do not bring any cash to residents at this time. Residents at Tabor Court can purchase items with debit, Visa, or Mastercard at the front desk as needed. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

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.

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.
