Lisa Corrente was quoted by Law Times on long-term care home placement service providers now being subject to COVID-19 vaccination policies. 

Local health integration networks operating as home and community care support services relating to the delivery of community services and long-term care home placement services should now establish, implement and ensure compliance with a COVID-19 vaccination policy.

On Aug. 17, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health issued Directive #6 under s. 77.7 of the Health Protection and Promotion Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. H.7, which expanded the implementation of COVID-19 vaccination policies to certain high-risk settings, effective Sept. 7.

Since July 1, a directive by Ontario’s long-term care minister has required long-term care homes across the province to impose such vaccination policies on their staff, student placements and volunteers, said a blog post by Lisa Corrente, a partner in the litigation department and in the health law group at Torkin Manes LLP.
