1. Attestion of Compliance to Requirements during visit:

I have been informed of the visitor requirements and have reviewed the "INSIDE Family Visit Reminders":

  • Arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to scheduled time
  • Proceed to the “Screening Table” at the Family Visiting Area near our main entrance (during inclement weather we will be located in the vestibule of the front entrance)
  • A procedural mask will be provided and must be worn at all times
  • No pets or outside drink or food for the Resident is allowed
  • Please leave any items for your family member at the table located at our Staff entrance (Mondays – Fridays 9 am – 3 pm)

I understand:

  • I must proceed directly to and from the resident's room
  • There is no access to any common areas of Pioneer Ridge
  • Infection, prevention and control (IPAC) protocols must be followed at all times, including wearing a procedure mask and sanitizing my hands before and after entering the building and the resident room
  • Non-compliance of these requirements will results in the discontinuation of visits

2. Attestion of negative COVID-19 test:

I attest to Pioneer Ridge screening staff that I have tested negative for COVID-19 within the last 2 weeks of today's date and subsequently not tested positive.
