Other guidelines

Building control measures: Building access


Building access may be controlled or restricted as a risk mitigation measure. Building hours may be reduced. Portions of a facility may be restricted on an ongoing basis, designated as restricted for use by visitors, or temporarily unavailable for additional sanitation or due to health and safety concerns.

Building hours will be designated by the unit leader with approval by the applicable administrators, such as vice presidents. In the instance when buildings house multiple units, the unit leaders must agree to any adjustments to building hours. The COO or designee, in consultation with other applicable administrators, such as vice presidents or the medical director will determine when building access restrictions are warranted for health or safety concerns.

Advanced notice will be provided to individuals when appropriate. Signage will be posted to designate limited access to buildings or portions of buildings.
