PLAST TORONTO RESPONSE TO COVID-19

Latest Updates

May 5, 2022 – Please be advised that Plast Toronto is continuing with current Covid measures, as described below.

As we continue to transition to a more sustainable, long-term approach to managing COVID-19, we recognize that adapting to new measures will take time and that not everyone will have the same level of comfort with the measures in place.

Because our programs can include close contact in indoor settings, we are committed to providing the safest environment we can to protect each other.

Health Screening & Masking

We ask that all Plast program participants, volunteers and staff continue to do a self-assessment before coming to Plast Activities.

Wearing of masks is strongly encouraged for all Plast Program participantsand will continue to be required in the following circumstances: 

  • For days 6-10 after a self-isolation period of five days after a COVID-19 diagnosis. Learn more.
  • If you are identified as a close contact of someone with COVID-19. Learn more.
  • In public spaces, including schools and childcares, for the first 14 days following travel outside of Canada. Learn more.

 

Vaccination Status

At this time Plast Toronto will continue to follow our Vaccination Policy (see below).

Other Safety Measures

As of March 22, 2022, Plast Toronto lifted of all cohorting, physical distancing, and capacity requirements. We will continue the use of HEPA filters at the Huculak Centre and encourage increased ventilation, like opening windows.

Thank you for your ongoing patience and support. We will continue to monitor and evaluate, follow our guiding principles, and shape our responses and policies accordingly.

December 23, 2021 – Please be reminded that all volunteers and members participating in in-person Plast activities, including youth, volunteers and parents, who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and can safely do so, must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least 14 days prior to attending any in-person Plast activities.

While it is not feasible to expect that all children under 12 years of age will be fully vaccinated when our programs resume in the New Year, Plast Toronto encourages parents to have their children vaccinated as quickly as possible, and to submit their proof of vaccination to the Plast Toronto office using the Vaccine Disclosure Form (link below). However, it will not be mandatory for children under 12 to be vaccinated at this time. 

Please also note that Plast will be following government protocols and not permit children under 12 who have travelled outside Canada and are not fully vaccinated to participate in any in-person activity until 14 days after their arrival date.

We also encourage everyone to receive their booster shot, as soon as they are eligible and able. 

You may review our vaccine policy at the link provided below. We will continue to review our policy and will provide further updates as necessary.
