 Actions Taken

  • Directive #2 continues to be in effect.  The ministry continues to work on drafting amendments to Directive #2 to support future resumption of services, pending continued improvements in key public health indicators.
  • While preparing to re-open for in person services, health service providers are reminded to follow the hierarchy of controls to eliminate or reduce the risks of transmission, and to minimize their need for PPE. Health service providers and employers should be sourcing PPE through their regular supply chain and they remain responsible for sourcing and providing PPE to their frontline workers. PPE allocation from the provincial pandemic stockpile will continue, and PPE can be accessed, within available supply, on an emergency basis through the established escalation process.
