Ontario Long-Term Care Experiencing Staff Shortages Due to Omicron


Ontario Long Term Care Association's CEO, Donna Duncan, said that an estimated 20 to 30 per cent of staff are off work right now due to the pandemic. “We are seeing more waves of staff leaving and staff coming back, so it’s not a big hit all at once, it is more of a rolling impact we are finding more manageable at this time.” Duncan also noted that changes like vaccines have made things more manageable for staff.
