Covid 19 Protocol Update

The information below is a summary of some of the changes that came into effect March 21, 2022, in accordance with the Chief Medical Officer of Health’s directives. Prior to commencing any in person activities at the Capreol Millennium Center it is important that you are aware of these changes to the provincial regulations. Please share this with any of your organization as you see fit. 


Masks, Screening and Physical Distancing in CGS facilities: 

  • Masks will generally no longer be required in most CGS facilities, with exceptions for: 

    • areas identified by the province (e.g., Transit, Paramedic Services, Pioneer Manor); 

    • federally legislated staff at the Greater Sudbury Airport; and 

    • other instances outlined under federal or provincial direction (e.g., after returning from international travel, or if you are a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or has symptoms)

    • Masking will no longer be required: members/patrons may wear a mask if they choose to do so. Public Health Sudbury & Districts Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Penny Sutcliffe continues to strongly recommend the use of masks in indoor public settings to protect against COVID-19 infection as “masking remains a simple and effective tool to protect yourself and those around you”. Individuals should assess their situation to determine what is best for their own circumstance. Personal choice to wear or not wear a mask will be supported and respected.   

  • Physical distancing requirements will be removed: Please keep in mind that people’s comfort level with close contact may be different. Please encourage your members and patrons to be aware and respect everyone’s personal choices. 

  • Members, staff/volunteers and patrons will no longer be required to complete a self-screening tool before entering the Capreol Millennium Center: Passive screening signs must be posted at any entrances to the facility. If an individual is feeling unwell, they should not enter the facility. Please visit this site for more information: What to do if you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 | COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Ontario. 

  • Safety plans and active screening requirements are no longer required. 

  • Cleaning and Disinfection: We recommend you continue with an enhanced level of cleaning and disinfecting at the facility and follow all Public Health Sudbury and District guidelines. 


Vaccination Policy: 

  • The COVID-19 vaccination policy for CGS employees and contractors remains in place. The only change to the policy is that it no longer applies to volunteers with exceptions to areas governed by other legislation (e.g., Pioneer Manor). 

  • Public health experts continue to stress that vaccination remains one of the best ways to reduce the impact of COVID-19 on individuals, communities, and the health care system. There is strong evidence that vaccines provide protection against more severe health effects of the virus, so the policy continues to be a reasonable step to reduce its impact on anyone entering the Capreol Millennium Center.  


Isolation Requirements: 

  • Isolation guidelines have also changed for close contacts of someone with COVID-19 or who is symptomatic. 

  • For high-risk settings, isolation for those identified as high-risk close contacts will comply with requirements from the Ministry of Long-Term Care. 

  • Individuals do not have to self-isolate if they are non-household contacts of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or has COVID-19 symptoms. However, for 10 days after their last exposure, they must: 

    • self-monitor for symptoms; 

    • wear a well-fitted mask in all public settings; 

    • not visit anyone who is immunocompromised or at higher risk of illness; and 

    • not visit or attend any highest risk settings unless they have previously tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days. 

  • Individuals who are household contacts of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or has COVID-19 symptoms should generally self-isolate while that household member is isolating, unless they: 

    • are 18 years and older and have received their booster dose; 

    • are under 18 years and are fully vaccinated; or 

    • have previously tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days.
