Please note: FSAS continues to watch and follow government regulations relating to COVID restrictions. We have had to adapt both access to facilities and the circulation of people in the building to ensure optimal safety for our live-in residents, our day residents and our staff. This may have an impact on the timing, duration and sequencing of residencies.
