These are extraordinary times and CAMH is committed to transparency and communication with the community that we serve. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, CAMH will update the public when there are changes to report.
Today we are reporting one positive patient diagnosis and one positive staff diagnosis. As of today, CAMH has two patients and two staff members with positive COVID-19 diagnoses.
We are pleased to announce that our vaccine clinic is now open to the community. Individuals who meet the prioritization criteria set by the Government of Ontario can book an appointment now at www.camh.ca/covidvaccine. This includes:
- Adults over 75 years old
- Adults self-identifying as First Nations, Inuit or Métis
- High priority health care workers
- Faith leaders.
We remain vigilant about policies and procedures to keep staff and patients safe and we continue to work with our partners at Toronto Public Health on reporting, surveillance and infection control. Our staff monitors and follows the Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) recommendations from public health as they are updated, including about screening, testing and use of personal protective equipment.
We thank our staff and physicians for their continued work to care for our patients during these challenging times.
