Please note that this article was published in 2020 and MOSAIC has now transitioned to a Communicable Disease Safety Plan as of May 2022.
MOSAIC’s COVID-19 Response Team and the Health, Safety, and Security Team have developed specific protocols for a COVID-19 Organizational Safety Plan that will prepare for the eventual and gradual reopening of sites — with strict procedures to ensure safety of staff and clients.
Each site manager, with input from front-line workers who are representative of the work done at the site, will also develop a Site-Specific COVID-19 Safety Plan, building on the organizational plan and addressing risks specific to the site and its operations.
Priority is being placed on MOSAIC services for which remote delivery is not as effective in meeting client needs.
Protocols and plans will be revised as necessary.
As required by the Provincial Health Officer, the organizational plans are being made public: Organizational COVID-19 Safety Plan (PDF Download).
