I work for Home Care and another long term care (LTC) facility – am I exempt from the new cohorting rule?

Answer

No – home care staff are not exempt from being cohorted if they also work in LTC. Therefore, if you are cohorted to the LTC home, you cannot work in Home Care – if you’re assigned to work in Home care, you cannot work at the LTC. The only exemption is that Home Care workers are allowed to work in multiple environments in a Home Care shift as a part of your regular duties.
