Dear Actionmarguerite residents and families,
Today, Actionmarguerite implemented a COVID-19 immunization policy, making vaccination mandatory for all staff. Given that we support some of our community’s most vulnerable persons, doing everything within our power to protect them is paramount.
We know that the science shows that vaccination against COVID-19 is safe and reduces the risks of severe illness, hospitalization, and death from the virus. The Delta variant is significantly more contagious and now accounts for most cases in Manitoba. We are well into the fourth wave and are seeing the number of cases increase in the province with projections that it will continue to increase.
Upon weighing the risks to the people we serve and the benefits to our team members and the community as a whole, vaccination will now be required for everyone who works, learns, does research, volunteers, and visits at Actionmarguerite. This will apply except in cases with documented human rights exemption.
Thanks to everyone for continuing to follow the strict public health protocols. Being diligent when you visit Actionmarguerite and how you follow the Public Health orders in your everyday life makes a big difference.
We are looking forward to the upcoming Resident and Family Council Meetings, so please watch for the invitations. If there are any topics you would like to see addressed, please send them to email@example.com.
Remembrance Day is upon us. Poppies adorn lapels and our collective thoughts turn to those who bravely fought – and those who continue – to defend our freedom. Join us in observing a moment of silence to honour their courage and sacrifices made in our name.
