Our first concern as an Agency is for the health, safety and well-being of our staff and those we serve.
In the spirit of openness, I wish to share with you that earlier this week our Agency confirmed its first positive case of COVID-19, which occurred in one of our PDD homes in Edmonton and involved three people.
We responded extremely well, worked with our partners effectively, and the issue has been contained to this home alone. I wish to thank all those staff involved for their calm professionalism, diligence and care, and we pray for the speedy recovery of the the staff member affected. The other two individuals were, and continue to be, asymptomatic.
I'd also like to take this time to once again remind everyone of the availability of mental health supports. If needed, please do use our Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP). Details for the EFAP are available on the Portal or can be accessed by phoning: 1-800-663-1142.
Thank you sincerely for all you continue to do.
Lastly, this weekend marks the first official day of summer. I hope you are able to find some time to enjoy it.
Kind wishes and Happy Father's Day to all the CSS Dads!
