McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update
Monday, December 14, 2020
The results of our staff, external providers and resident COVID-19 testing were slow to arrive over the remainder of the weekend, due to the extreme pressures on lab capacity. As of this morning, we have received all the results for our staff and external providers for our COVID-19 testing that took place on Wednesday, December 9 and Thursday, December 10, and are pleased to say that our results are 100% negative.
Our thoughts remain with the affected resident on Evergreen Walk and their family at this time.
All results received to date for 154 residents have been negative, with the exception of the one positive resident. We continue to wait for one resident result from Willow Ridge from the first round of testing, as well as from two other residents who were swabbed on Sunday as a precaution, due to their displaying a symptom associated with COVID-19.
COVID-19 testing for caregivers this week includes the following dates. Please note that Friday has been added to the list:
- Monday, December 14, 2020, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
- Tuesday, December 15, 2020, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
- Thursday, December 17, 2020, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
- Friday, December 18, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Once we know all our test results, I will arrange a Zoom family meeting to discuss our status and to answer any questions you may have. Thank you for your patience and incredible support and words of encouragement over the past week.
I would like to thank and acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our staff and leadership team during these incredibly stressful and trying times. I am proud to work with such an amazing body of staff.
Stay safe, and be reminded that Middlesex-London is now designated as a Red-Control public health region.
