COVID-19 Measures and Program Updates at CLTO

Find out what's happening with our supports and services and learn about our current COVID-19 measures, including visits, staff safety, and office protocols.

COVID-19 Measures


Online screening measures are in place at all our sites. Our staff are trained and continuously supported in infection prevention and control, cleaning, and disinfection protocols.

Rapid Antigen Testing

As of December 24, 2021, all staff in our group homes and respite programs must do Rapid Antigen Tests twice a week. CLTO provides the tests, which staff self-administer outside when they arrive at their shift.

Staff Vaccination Status

All staff who provide direct support or work in an environment where individuals are supported are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Visits to CLTO Residences

In keeping with provincial guidelines, all visits to CLTO sites must be pre-scheduled.  You can book your visit here. Only visitors who are fully vaccinated, or able to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 24 hours prior to the visit, will be permitted for indoor visits. You will need to wear a mask and practice physical distancing throughout your visit.

Visits with an unvaccinated family member or friend who has not provided a negative COVID-19 test will be permitted to occur outdoors if all parties wear full personal protective equipment (PPE), including a medical/procedural mask and face shield, and use physical distancing of six feet between visitors for the duration of the visit.

Specific CLTO sites may be subject to further restrictions beyond these guidelines. Please consult with the site supervisor or manager with questions regarding site-specific restrictions.

Should changes to these rules be necessary or mandated by the provincial government, we will implement them without delay and notify you immediately.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your CLTO supervisor or email us at
