McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Monday, August 17, 2020

This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Monday, August 17, 2020. We will continue to provide these updates twice weekly, on Mondays and Thursdays, or as needed.

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

Taking place this week is our next round of scheduled COVID-19 staff surveillance testing. As a reminder, indoor visits will not be available on Wednesday, August 19, 2020, or Thursday, August 20, 2020, to accommodate this testing within the home.  Outdoor visits and approved essential caregiving visits will proceed as usual.

Family outdoor and indoor visiting continues to go well.  As a reminder, there are no scheduled visits on Sundays at this time.  If you are an indoor visitor or an approved essential caregiver, you must obtain a negative COVID-19 test every 14 days and submit proof to Nita Spowart, administrative assistant, at admin.assistant@mccormickcare.ca.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as you proceed through our check-in and screening process.  It may be a little busy this week as the essential caregiver program commences, so we thank you for respecting our six-foot social distancing requirement while waiting to enter the building.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead,

Tanya Pol
