Safe Visitation

Current Risk for COVID-19 Exposure & Infection at Intercare Facilities

COVID-19 Risk for all Intercare Long Term Care (LTC) and Supportive Living (SL) facilities is currently considered to be HIGH due to the following:

  • Provincial return to Step 1 of COVID-19 Restrictions on April 6, 2021 to reduce exponential growth in COVID-19 Variants of Concern (‘VOC’) cases in Alberta;
  • Exponential increase in transmission and cases of highly infectious COVID-19 VOC in the Calgary Zone;
  • Exponential increase in COVID-19 related hospitalizations and ICU admissions in the Calgary Zone;
  • COVID-19 ‘fatigue’ and COVID-19 ‘vaccination hesitancy’ in the community; and
  • Rise in number of continuing care sites declared to be in COVID-19 outbreak in the Calgary Zone.
