How We Are Responding To COVID-19

Since the start of this global pandemic so much has changed. One thing that will not change is our commitment to you. Our top priorities are the health, well-being and safety of Amica residents and team members.

From the onset of the novel coronavirus, we have implemented numerous proactive measures at our residences to minimize risk. Our team members have been well prepared, putting into place our strong infection control and management protocols. As well, we are in constant communication with local public health officials and continue to adhere to all the guidelines and directives set forth by provincial and regional health authorities. We acted decisively; quickly implementing visitor restrictions and screening, closing resident common areas and suspending group activities to mitigate the spread of the virus. We are also working with public health authorities to vaccinate Amica residents, team members, essential family visitors and/or essential care partners as swiftly as possible, based on regional eligibility requirements and supplies of the Health Canada-approved Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

We are committed to being here for our residents, their families and our team members as we fight this virus together. We will update this page as new information becomes available.

An Interview with our CEO

May 26, 2020 – As provinces begin to relax some of their COVID-19 protective measures, we have fielded many questions from Amica residents and families about whether we will change our own protective protocols. We asked award-winning Canadian communicator Amanda Alvaro to moderate a Q&A discussion with Amica CEO Doug MacLatchy, where Doug answered direct questions from Amica residents and families on Amica’s plans for operating safety until such time as a COVID-19 treatment or vaccine is available.
