McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update
Wednesday, September 30, 2020
This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Wednesday, September 30, 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.
In consultation with the Middlesex-London Public Health Unit, we continue to encourage all indoor visitors and caregivers to take a personal hygiene break prior to arriving at McCormick Home. Outdoor visitors are not permitted within the home, including washroom facilities, as per the original communication from the Ministry of Long-Term Care. Recognizing that caregivers in particular may be on site for a longer period of time, the home has designated one visitor’s washroom within the home if needed. It is located on the first floor by the back entrance. Turn left at the hair salon, and turn right after the vending machines. The first door on the right is the visitor’s washroom. We appreciate your ongoing cooperation to limit the use of our facilities while on site.
As of September 29, 2020, three Shoppers Drug Mart locations in London are now offering COVID-19 testing by appointment only. Family members of long-term care residents are eligible to get tested at these locations. It is important to call ahead of time and speak to the pharmacist to book an appointment. The three locations include:
- 395 Southdale Road East
- 603 Fanshawe Park Road West
- 3090 Colonel Talbot Road
Have a wonderful day,
