Re: CoVid-19 (Coronavirus Disease)
At ImagineAbility, our first concern is for the safety and health of our employees, their families and the people we support. We are therefore implementing the following processes for employees who are travelling and returning, employees who have family members who have travelled and with whom the employee is in close physical contact, and employees who are considering travelling:
• All employees who have travelled outside of Canada or who are living with someone who they would be in close contact with who recently returned from travelling outside Canada is required to self-quarantine for 14 days. They can use Personal Days and/or Vacation Days or they can check with Employment Insurance to see if there are any financial benefits available to them.
• We ask that if an employee has someone returning from a vacation outside of Canada that they live with, the employee considers temporarily relocating for 14 days while they are in self-quarantine otherwise the employee could be subject to an unpaid quarantine as well.
• If an employee becomes infected with COVID-19 and/or is showing symptoms, they must contact Health Links to obtain direction on next course of action. We will have employees work with our benefits provider for short term disability benefits if they become sick.
• Effective immediately: Any employee who chooses to travel outside of Manitoba for non-essential travel, must disclose their travel location to their ImagineAbility manager, and will be subject to a 14 day unpaid self-quarantine until further notice.
We must all do our part to ensure the spread of COVID-19 is minimized and that we keep our loved ones and the vulnerable people in our communities safe and healthy.
