Community Care is Still Open and Still Functioning.
In light of recent announcements made by the Premier of Ontario, Warden of Peterborough County and Mayor of Peterborough, all declaring a state of emergency and requiring non-essential services and business to close, Community Care remains open as is deemed an essential service under the health care, seniors care and social services classification, as defined on the provincial list today, organizations and providers that deliver home care services. Community Care also qualify under the not-for-profit organizations that provide critical personal support services in-home and provide transportation services necessary for activities of daily living.
Community Care staff are in daily conversations with Peterborough Public Health and we are committed to their part in limiting the spread of COVID-19. Community Care has adapted their services, maintaining minimum staff in their offices with the majority of staff working remotely. Community Care continues to practice social distancing and have lessened traffic into their offices for the safety of the most vulnerable. Staff continue to monitor all in-coming phone calls and we are able to respond to service requests.
