The Children’s Treatment Centre of Chatham-Kent is committed to providing safe and healthy rehabilitation services for clients, families, staff and the community. Wearing a mask can help to reduce the spread of respiratory infections including COVID-19.
The Children’s Treatment Centre requires everyone over 9 years of age to wear a mask during their visit to the Children’s Treatment Centre and while receiving in-person services.
Children younger than 9 years of age, chronologically or developmentally, are encouraged to wear a mask but it is not required.
Surgical masks will be provided to clients and visitors at reception who are 9 years of age or older.
No proof of exemption from wearing a mask is required. Masks are not required:
- For a client, family member or visitor with a medical condition, including breathing, sensory, or cognitive difficulties, or a disability, that prevents them from safely wearing a mask
- For a client, family member or visitor who is unable to put on or remove their mask without the assistance of another person
Clinicians may request that clients temporarily remove their mask while receiving services.
