The guidance on health and safety continues to evolve related to Covid-19, even as Ontario resumes more open activities.  We urge all families and direct support providers to follow guidance from the Windsor Essex Health Unit and Public Health Ontario.  Families may choose to have only people who have been vaccinated come into their home and it is expected that both the DSP and the family discuss the safety practices that they will be committed to, including pre-screening before coming to the home, not being together if anyone has symptoms of Covid-19 or has been in contact with anyone who has either tested positive or is in isolation.
