Response to COVID-19

CIE Property Management’s Response to the COVID-19

CIE takes the health and safety of its staff, unit owners, residents, building personnel and all visitors very seriously. As such, we at CIE continue to monitor any city or province wide outbreaks, epidemics, weather related factors, environmental occurrences, etc., which may impact and/or affect any person(s) and/or any of the communities/buildings/properties to which we manage and/or consult.

In the event of a “state of emergency” and/or “hold & secure” type of situation; CIE Property Management has safety procedures in place. In any instance(s) that would require a quarantine etc., the proper authorities would be contacted immediately and ONLY then will their procedures be put into place as they are provincially regulated and govern such matters.

Once of the ways that agencies, including school boards, airports, hospitals, shopping centers, etc., receive up to date information and/or updates is via the Ministry of Health.

Although, we appreciate the sincere intentions of our Owners, unless deemed appropriate and necessary, which at this specific date and time it is not; creating additional attention and/or hysteria to a subject matter which is all over social media; yet unsubstantiated within the province can cause harmful and stress induced effects on our residents and visitors.

The symptoms of the 2019 novel coronavirus, which can include fever and cough, are similar to other respiratory infections, including influenza. As a result, individuals who may simply have the flu are being tested out of an abundance of caution and in line with Ontario’s robust detection protocols. This means that most individuals who are tested are unlikely to be infected with the 2019 novel coronavirus.

Until advised by either the World Health Organization (WCC), Centre for Disease Control (CDC), the provincial government and/or Registered Health Practitioners (directly related to our immediate general population).

We will continue to monitor as described above and discuss options with your elected Board Members should such a need arise.

It is recommended that for now, individuals continue with partaking in the measures/actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a face-mask.
  • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
  • Face masks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of face masks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
