COVID-19 Update October 9 2020 -2

McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update #2

Friday, October 9, 2020

This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Friday, October 9, 2020.  We will continue to provide these updates twice weekly, on Mondays and Thursdays, or as needed.

Please note:  Monday’s update will be deferred until Tuesday due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

McCormick Home has just received notification from the Middlesex-London Health unit that a family caregiver, who has a loved one at McCormick Home, has tested positive for COVID-19.  The last visit to the home by the family caregiver occurred on October 4, 2020.

Following the health unit’s investigation, they have advised us that the risk of exposure to the home and the resident is low.  The resident is not displaying any signs or symptoms of COVID-19, but has been placed in isolation as a precautionary measure.  Public health officials have indicated that no further action is required at this time.  No additional information will be provided at this time, to protect the privacy of the resident and family caregiver.

McCormick Home is committed to being open and transparent throughout the pandemic.  This update is being provided to all families and staff in our continuing effort to maintain that commitment.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to Tanya Pol, Administrator, via email over the weekend at tpol@mccormickcare.ca

Sincerely,

Tanya Pol
