Do you know what it means to be “COVID-competent”?

In response to changes announced last month by the Provincial Health Officer on visitation in long-term care and assisted living, SafeCare BC, in collaboration with Family Caregivers of British Columbia, has developed an online COVID-19 orientation for families and friends wanting to support loved ones in care.

COVID-19: Social Visitation Essentials is a self-paced, online course is intended for those who would like to visit a family member or friend residing in a long-term care home or assisted living residence, as permitted by the care home’s safety plan and regional public health direction.

This course will give you an introduction to COVID-19 and provide instructions on how to help slow the transmission of COVID-19, including proper hand hygiene techniques and mask wearing practices.

Upon completion, you will receive a certificate that can be presented to the management personnel at the long-term care home or assisted living residence.
