These are extraordinary times and CAMH is committed to transparency and communication with the community that we serve. We have committed to providing regular weekday updates on the status of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 and actions that we’re taking to keep staff and patients safe.
As of today, CAMH is providing care for 1 patient with a positive diagnosis of COVID-19 on site. We are also reporting 2 additional resolved staff diagnoses.
During these unprecedented times, we continue to remain vigilant about our policies and procedures in place to keep staff and patients safe. We continue to work with our partners at Toronto Public Health on reporting, surveillance and infection control. Our staff continually 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.
