COVID-19 Update December 23 2020

McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Wednesday December 23, 2020

I am pleased to report that the home’s COVID-19 outbreak has been declared over by the Middlesex-London Public Health Unit.  Thank you to all of you for your support, words of encouragement, and understanding over the past two weeks.  It has been an incredibly challenging time for everyone.  A special thanks to our dedicated staff who have supported the residents and their families on Evergreen Walk during these trying times.  Their sacrifice, care and compassion have not gone unnoticed and we are grateful to each and every one of them.

At this time we have no probable, suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Caregiver COVID-19 testing dates are as follows:

  • Wednesday, December 23, 2020, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Friday, December 25, 2020, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
  • Monday, December 28, 2020, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, December 30, 2020, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, January 2, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

As test results are now being published on the public website, we will not be notifying families of their results.  If you want to check to see whether your results have been received by the home, you can check with the screener at the front door.  They will have the most up to date information available.  As a reminder to families, it is your responsibility to ensure your COVID test is valid and has been completed within the previous 7 days.  Without this, we cannot allow you to enter into the home.

Please note, the next family update will be sent on Tuesday, December 29, 2020 unless an emergent issue arises.

On behalf of everyone at McCormick Home, I wish you all a safe and healthy holiday season.
