We continue supporting the health, safety and wellness of all our employees by following Ontario Health guidance as it relates to stopping the spread of COVID-19 in our offices, care settings and communities.

COVID-19 vaccination mandatory for all staff

Spectrum Health Care made the decision to make COVID-19 vaccination mandatory for all of our team members. We are requiring staff to comply with one of three options in order to provide patient care or to attend office locations:

  1. Provide proof that the first dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccination series approved by Health Canada was administered and, as soon as reasonably possible, proof of administration of the second dose; or
  2. Written authorization provided by either a physician or nurse practitioner that confirms the individual cannot be vaccinated against COVID-19; or
  3. Complete a mandatory e-learning module.

The full press release can be read here.
