OARC Recommendation for Residents’ Council in Long-Term Care during COVID-19 Pandemic

To support and align with the current recommendation of the Chief Medical Officer of Ontario, OARC recommends that Residents’ Council meetings be postponed until further notice. Social distancing is an important preventative practice, so minimizing group activities is an important step in reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

Celebrating excellence, addressing concerns and experiencing peer support through Residents’ Council meetings/activities are important to living well in LTC.  OARC acknowledges this is an extremely difficult time, and we assure you that the decision was not made lightly. 

OARC extends heartfelt thanks to the thousands of LTC team members who remain committed to supporting the best quality of life possible for residents. We encourage you to be patient and kind with each other and look forward to the time when you will be reunited with friends, family, co-residents!  What a celebration that will be!

Please stay safe one and all.

We will continue to update you as the situation with COVID-19 progresses. View our COVID-19 update bulletins here
