  • Long-term care residents can leave their residences for short-stay and temporary absences.

o   Effective immediately, residents can spend time away from their long-term care homes for day trips or overnight absences.

o   For ‘short-stay’ absences — those that do not include an overnight stay — homes must provide residents with a medical mask to be worn at all times when outside of the home and remind them of the importance of public health measures, including physical distancing. When they return, residents must be actively screened but are not required to be tested or to self-isolate.
