Action Plan for Vulnerable Populations - April 23

The government has announced the COVID-19 Action Plan for Vulnerable People.

The purpose of this plan is to better protect those living in high risk settings including homes serving those with developmental disabilities, shelters for survivors of gender-based violence and human trafficking and children’s residential settings. This includes Indigenous residential settings on and off reserve.

The Action Plan focuses on enhanced screening and reduced exposure to prevent spread; infection control, including managing outbreaks and limiting spread; and sustaining existing staff and managing critical staff shortages.
