McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Monday, April 18, 2022

This is a McCormick Care Group update for Monday, April 18, 2022

We regret to inform the families of Oak Avenue that the home area is going into a respiratory outbreak, with an unknown pathogen, effective immediately. In the last 48 hours, we have had an increase in residents who are displaying 2 or more respiratory symptoms, reaching the case definition of a respiratory outbreak.

Residents will have to remain on the home area and only one essential caregiver can visit at a time. Only residents who are displaying symptoms will be isolated to their rooms, for a minimum of five days. Residents who are displaying symptoms since the PCR tests were conducted on Saturday, will have a repeat PCR test as per Public Health direction and Ministry guidance.

Updates will be shared as more information becomes available.

Thank you for your understanding and patience,

Tanya Pol
