Introducing Our Pandemic Plan & Updates
AVENS is actively taking steps to decrease the risk and spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory illness to the residents who live here. AVENS has been working closely with the Government of the Northwest Territories and following the latest updates on COVID-19 to ensure we are putting interventions in place to protect staff and the Residents.
Highlights of our change in operations are:
- No visitors in person, but we are encouraging video conferencing with our residents, family and friends.
- Changes to our team members work such as wearing facial masks, changing form “street” clothing/footwear to “work” clothing/footwear onsite, temperature checks and screening questions.
- Increased cleaning of common touchpoints and locations by our housekeeping team
