Our New Normal
CMHS has re-opened select in-person services and continues to provide virtual services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The safety and wellbeing of clients and staff remain our top priority.
Some of our clients are best served, and prefer to receive their services, in-person. Our approach to re-opening in-person services at CMHS sites has allowed us to meet the needs of our clients and their families while also meeting Public Health requirements.
CMHS staff, clients and visitors will be asked to self-screen for symptoms of COVID-19 before attending any appointment at CMHS.
Everyone who enters a CMHS location will be asked to disinfect their hands with approved hand sanitizer and will be required to wear a mask.
All high touch surfaces are disinfected regularly, and any equipment or surfaces used during appointments are disinfected before and after each appointment.
You will be required to call your worker when you arrive so they can bring you into the office.
CMHS Live-In Treatment Services are open and are being delivered using enhanced health and safety/infection prevention and control measures.
