McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update #2

Wednesday, April 22, 2020

This is a second McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Wednesday, April 22, 2020. We will continue to provide these updates every Monday, Wednesday and Friday as needed.

There are no probable or suspected cases of COVID-19 among our residents or staff at this time.

As a precautionary measure, a provincial directive was issued today that requires all long-term care home residents and staff members to be swabbed and tested for COVID-19.  We remain in close touch with local pandemic task forces, including the Middlesex-London Health Unit, and are awaiting direction on when the testing will take place at McCormick Home.  The Middlesex-London Health Unit is currently developing an implementation plan on how to roll out this requirement across our region.  Given that the home is not currently in outbreak for COVID-19 or any other outbreak, we will not likely be undergoing the testing process until sometime next week.  We will keep you posted of any updates.

Thank you.
