McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Monday, May 4, 2020

This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Monday, May 4, 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.

Today, we received notice from the Middlesex London Health Unit that COVID-19 testing of our residents will be taking place at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 7, 2020, in each resident home area.  Please note that this time is subject to the availability of swabs. If you have a previously scheduled Facetime, Skype or Zoom session at that time, we will be in touch to reschedule it as soon as possible.

COVID-19 testing of our staff members continues and will be completed no later than tomorrow.

Please be reminded that while we are pleased to hear from and respond to family members who are inquiring about their loved ones, it would be appreciated if all families could assign one of their members to contact the home for information and updates.  This step will help free up staff time and better enable us to focus on administering care.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
