To Our Long-Term Care & Nursing Home Customers
The Ontario Ministry of Long-Term Care provided an updated "Resuming Visits in Long-Term Care Homes" in September. It states that "Homes should ask caregivers to verbally attest to the home that they have tested negative for COVID-19 within the previous 2 weeks and not subsequently tested positive." The province has changed this to "...within the previous week" for Orange, Red and Lock-down zones.
Abell Pest Control is your trusted partner for pest prevention and we have a dedicated committee taking immediate steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
During this second wave of COVID19, Abell has reinforced our plan and we continue to fully follow these procedures.
Our #1 priority is the safety of our employees and our customers. To support this priority, here are some of the important steps we've taken.
Mandatory Training has been completed by all Abell staff to ensure they are armed with practical knowledge such as hand washing, sanitation and social distancing.
Personal Protection tools such as hand sanitizers, sanitizing spray for shoes and equipment and protective gloves have been provided to all Abell employees. Facemasks and gloves are required 100% of the time while inside a customer’s location.
Work Safe means that any Abell employee who is feeling ill will not visit customer locations and will be quarantined to home for 14 days.
Customer Signatures on Abell Hand-Held devices and printed tickets will not be collected temporarily. This will eliminate the need to pass Hand-Held units and paperwork back and forth, reducing the risk of transmission.
e-Tickets are available for Abell customers. This produces an instant electronic version of service ticket to the customer, reducing the need to hand paper back-and-forth.
Mandatory Employee Questionnaires are being distributed regularly to monitor the health & wellness of all Abell employees.
Where a client location is confirmed to have had COVID-19, Abell employees will not service the interior of those facilities, be it residential, commercial or industrial. We will continue to provide exterior services to provide maximum protection to the facility.
These locations are monitored and updated daily.
