Good afternoon,

First off, I would like to wish all staff a very Happy New Year. I hope you are able to continue to find joy, motivation and comfort in 2022, despite the ongoing challenging circumstances. I would like to offer the General Authority’s support during these times. We are working with all of our agencies to ensure adequate supplies of PPE and rapid test kits (as they become available).

Over the past several months, there have been numerous circulars sent out regarding updated COVID practice guidelines for our service system, details on rapid test kits and other information.

If you’re looking for a particular circular, visit our COVID-19 page and you can look up the circulars by month, dated back to March 2020, on our COVID-19 page, https://generalauthority.ca/covid-19/.

I will continue to provide updates on the General Authority’s pandemic response in the coming weeks and months. I know you are all encouraging each other through these times.

I will also provide updates on several other initiatives we are working on in the coming weeks, so watch for those messages.

Best wishes and stay safe,


Jay Rodgers

CEO, General Child and Family Services Authority
