McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Friday, April 3, 2020

This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Friday, April 3, 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.

An important letter for families is being sent from our Medical Director, Dr. David Birch, regarding the need to review and consider medical directives for our residents.  A copy is being sent via Canada Post and our family e-mail list.

New guidelines from the Ministry of Long-Term Care have been released that require the need for long-term care homes to declare a COVID-19 outbreak at the sign of the first infection.  This measure will ensure that all outbreak procedures are immediately enacted to reduce the spread of the virus as much as possible.

We continue to monitor and screen both residents and staff twice daily.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
