The current Health order (CMOH Order 06-2022) states:
- Visiting persons must wear a well-fitting surgical/procedure mask OR they may use a well-fitted KN95 or N95 facemask or a respirator.
- Visiting persons who are spending time with residents with communication challenges (e.g. hearing concerns) where a mask would inhibit communication being provided, can remove mask while in a private space in the building if the resident consents and a distance of two meters is maintained between the visitor and the resident at all times.
- Masks can be temporarily removed for the purposes of eating and drinking and be replaced immediately after the food/drink is complete. A distance of two meters should be maintained while the mask is removed.
