On Saturday, Feb. 26, 2022 the Government of Alberta announced its decision to proceed to Step 2 of its Return to Normal plan on March 1 (Alberta to lift almost all remaining health restrictions | alberta.ca).
Effective March 1, 2022 the following changes to CHC’s business operations will be implemented:
Face coverings are no longer required in common areas and hallways of CHC managed properties.
- Scheduled maintenance in occupied units will commence on March 1, 2022.
- Common areas to open at full occupancy.
- Programs and events are permitted on all CHC managed sites.
- Outdoor patios will open, weather permitting.
- Indoor and outdoor social gatherings are permitted.
- Front counters will remain closed. Please continue to use our online and telephone contact options.
As self-isolation is still required for those with COVID-19 in order to prevent transmission, CHC will maintain the following until the Government of Alberta moves to Step 3:
- Residents are to continue reporting COVID-19 infections to their Property Manager and Tenant Liaison. CHC keeps this information confidential and uses it to provide residents with support during self-isolation and monitors our properties to prevent an outbreak on a CHC site.
- CHC will continue to as screening questions for COVID-19 prior to scheduling maintenance work. If a person in the household has COVID-19, the work will be scheduled after their self-isolation is complete. If the work is an emergency, the work will proceed with staff using the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment.
- Hygiene protocols and social distancing will continue to minimize transmission as we “Return to Normal”
