COVID-19 Guidance: Homelessness Services & Congregate Living Settings
Last updated: March 9, 2021 at 10:28 a.m.
On January 4, 2021, Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health issued a Letter of Instruction to all employers in the City of Toronto permitted to be open under the Reopening Ontario Act. Employers permitted to be open are required to take the additional measures set out in this Letter to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Homelessness service providers who want to report an individual with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, or who have questions related to an individual with suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19, can contact the TPH Shelters Intake Line at 416-338-1521 or email TPHshelters@toronto.ca between the hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. After-hours, please contact 311.
The City is asking that all homelessness service providers track vaccine uptake using the following survey: https://s.cotsurvey.chkmkt.com/?e=220559&h=DF9CD27D4D6AA39&l=en. The survey collects aggregate information, including site and program names, number of individuals vaccinated and health care partner information. Personal health information is not being collected.
The City is offering incentives for people experiencing homelessness to receive the vaccine. Incentive order form.
