COVID EMAIL UPDATE TO CORRECTIONAL OFFICERS AT THUNDER BAY JAIL & CORRECTIONAL CENTER

TBDHU is considering all staff to be high risk contacts for COVID-19

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~ January 30, 2021  (LSN)  Inside Edition has received a copy of an email sent to all Correctional Officers today, Saturday, January 30, 2021 

COVID UPDATE: CORRECTIONAL CENTRE & THUNDER BAY JAIL

January 30, 2021 To: Staff of the Thunder Bay Correctional Centre and, Staff of the Thunder Bay District Jail

The following applies to those of you who are currently attending work and those who have worked anytime in the past two weeks. Due to ongoing transmission of COVID-19 in both of these facilities, TBDHU is considering all staff to be high risk contacts for COVID-19.

We are asking that you immediately begin work self-isolation if you are not already doing so. Work self-isolation means that you must self-isolate except to attend work. When you are at work you must wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) at all times. PPE, properly worn, in addition to practicing other measures such as physical distancing, will significantly reduce your chance of getting COVID-19.

Because you are considered high risk contacts of COVID-19, anyone you live with is also at risk for COVID-19. As a result of this, your household members must also self-isolate. Instructions for you:  You are considered high risk contacts and your household members are also deemed "at risk".

 You should self-isolate away from your family members or other people in your household. Options for self-isolation are detailed below.

 If you get any symptoms, call TBDHU at (807) 625-5900 and arrange to get tested at the Assessment Centre. Do not go to work until your test results are back. Acceptable forms of isolating away from other household members include:

 Hotel rooms that have been made available to all staff for free, all meals are covered, and check-in is managed by SOLGEN.

 Some other form of alternative accommodations outside of the home, such as a camp or trailer.

 A completely separate area of your house, such as an in-law suite. It must be feasible for there to be no contact whatsoever with other members of the household, as this would put them at risk. Your household members must also self-isolate.

This includes:

  •  Any children/youth in the household cannot attend in-person school.
  •  Any adults in the household cannot attend in-person at their workplace, except if they are essential workers and have worked out arrangements with their employer. Household members can stop self-isolating if you have been separated (i.e. living separately) from them through any of the options identified above, for at least five days and you have tested negative at the end of those five days.

Once these conditions are met, household members may resume their normal activities, however, you must remain in isolation separate from your household members. If you choose not to isolate away from your household members, your whole household will have to remain in self-isolation.

Note that some staff may have circumstances that make work self-isolation unrealistic. In this case, you may need to take time away from work instead. Please discuss this with your employer. TBDHU strongly encourages you to take advantage of the offer to work self-isolate in the hotel that your employer has provided for you. This will protect your family.

For further information, please contact your supervisor or manager. Sincerely, Dr. Janet DeMille, CCFP, FRCPC Medical Officer of Health Thunder Bay District Health Unit
