Brightside COVID-19 Brief #02 – March 31, 2020

March 31, 2020

As some of you may have already seen, last week we sent out our first “Brightside COVID-19 Brief.” You can expect to receive a “package” from Brightside on a weekly basis with updates on actions that Brightside is taking at this time, as well as resources and other useful COVID-19 related information.

To help reduce the chances of COVID-19 transmission, we have enhanced our cleaning regime in all buildings and increased sanitization of all common areas and high-touch surfaces. In order to secure the health and safety of our residents, we are asking that all residents that are currently displaying symptoms, or have received a positive COVID-19 result, reach out to us as soon as possible. If we learn of a case of COVID-19 in one of our buildings, Brightside will promptly notify the residents of that building.

To ensure the health and safety of all of our residents, we ask that residents do not congregate in communal spaces (amenity rooms/spaces, lobbies, laundry rooms, etc.), and refrain from congregating in their suites as well. Visitors should be limited as much as possible (i.e. essential services). We also ask that residents refrain from approaching cleaners in the buildings. As they are working hard to maintain the cleanliness in the buildings, we want to ensure that their ability to continue their job is not compromised. Some residents have reached out to Brightside inquiring about mask availability. Unfortunately, at this time, the supply of masks available is extremely limited and we will most likely not be able to provide this to our residents.

Below you will find updates on Brightside’s actions during this time. We have organized this per department for your convenience.

Office Updates

Operations

Community Development

If you are experiencing extraordinary hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we invite you to contact our office by phone or by email. At this time, there are community and local supports that are becoming available. Note that while we may not have an immediate solution to your concern, this is an effort to better understand how our residents are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are exploring ways we may be able to help.

These are unprecedented times, and the COVID-19 situation evolves often. Our aim is to provide residents with relevant updates and information – in the form of numbered briefs – on a weekly basis. You can also find information about our response to COVID-19 and other resources at brightsidehomes.ca.

Practice social distancing, wash your hands often, and stay safe.
