Social gathering food and drink consumption guidelines include; only pre-packaged food/drinks, no food/drink sharing, sanitization of surfaces and shared equipment is required before and after use, hand sanitizer must be available in the room (preferred) or adjacent to the room.
Organizing Social Gatherings – Consider implications for the departments/groups involved if a COVID-19 transmission event occurs. Teams should ensure a plan is in place in the event that multiple staff members cannot attend work due to acquiring infection.
I'm a Bioethicist and Clinician-Scientist at the University Health Network in Toronto, an Assistant Professor at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health- University of Toronto, and an Affiliate Scientist at KITE Research Institute. I completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Waterloo where my research considered the ethics of sex and sexual consent for people with dementia. I am interested in bioethical issues related to geriatrics, people with dementia, and persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. I am currently working on a qualitative descriptive study exploring ethical issues related to feeding and nourishment in geriatric rehabilitation.
