On September 23, 2021, Children’s Treatment Network (CTN) implemented a COVID-19 vaccination policy. Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health issued instructions to the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) funded agencies regarding the mandatory implementation of a COVID-19 vaccination policy.
The purpose of this policy is to minimize the risk of transmission of the COVID-19 virus and to comply with the government of Ontario’s directive related to vaccination of individuals working in a higher risk work setting. This policy supports CTN’s strong commitment to protecting vulnerable individuals from COVID-19.
CTN supports a fully vaccinated workforce. Employees who are fully vaccinated provided proof of vaccination or an approved exemption. Employees who are not fully vaccinated must undergo regular rapid antigen testing for COVID-19. New hires, effective September 23, 2021, are required to be fully vaccinated or provide an approved exemption and must undergo regular rapid antigen testing for COVID-19 as a condition of employment.
CTN contracted service provider organizations are required to establish and implement a COVID-19 vaccination policy in accordance with the Chief Medical Officer of Health’s Letter of Instructions and to provide CTN with an attestation that their policy meets the MCCSS requirements. CTN’s requirements of contracted service provider organizations may change at any time to address risk of transmission, the availability of new information, and/or align with any new public health and/or ministry directives or recommendations related to COVID-19.
