McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Friday, October 2, 2020

This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Friday, October 2, 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.

Yesterday, the City of London announced that effective Monday, October 5, 2020, the COVID-19 assessment centre at Oakridge Arena will move to an appointment-only model.  To book an appointment, please call 519-667-6886 and indicate the reason you are requesting the test.  They will return your call within two days to offer an appointment time.  The assessment centre at the Carling Heights Optimist Community Centre on Elizabeth Street will continue to offer testing on a walk-in basis.  Again, please note that line-ups may continue to be lengthy, so please plan accordingly.  For more information on testing criteria, please visit www.healthunit.com/covid-19-concerns.

Shoppers Drug Mart has been asking families for McCormick Home’s investigation number, which links tests with our organization. Please note that the reference number is LTS-1340.

Have a wonderful weekend,
