THRIVE SOCIAL SERVICES SOCIETY POST PANDEMIC WELLNESS PRACTICES

As we move from away from COVID-19 Pandemic protocols and procedures, we being a new phase of working conditions. We have transitioned from a Pandemic Safety Plan to a Communicable Disease Plan and consequently have updated our practices regarding client service. Although some practices around health and wellness will remain, there will be updates to our Risk Assessment, Orientation Checklist, Annual Orientation Checklist and Attendance Guidelines to reflect the post pandemic practices for communicable disease and illness.

As an agency we will no longer require formal assessments and cleaning protocols that were developed during the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

Staff will no longer be required to complete a Sessional Risk Assessment prior to service, however all clients will be informed at orientation that:

  • should any person served arrive with or begin showing symptoms of illness during a session, the session will be discontinued

Staff will no longer be required to complete an In-home Service Assessment – the Agency Risk Assessment will be updated to include: Is there sufficient ability to ventilate the space that the session/s will be taking place in? (e.g., opening windows or doors, fresh air intake)  

Staff will no longer be required to complete surface cleaning in their vehicles after sessions, however the agency will continue to provide the cleaning solution for staff and recommend regular cleaning as a safe practice.

The agency will continue to provide masks, hand sanitizer and cleaning/sanitizing supplies for staff use in the course of their work, to be used at their own discretion. 

The agency continues to encourage staff to maintain booster doses as recommended by the Provincial Health Officer and public health officials.  

The agency continues to promote health and wellness practices including hand washing/sanitizing, staying home when you are sick or experiencing symptoms of illness or disease, wearing a mask when in close proximity to others, and other recommendations made by public health to prevent and reduce the spread of communicable disease and illness.
