McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Tuesday December 29, 2020

This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Tuesday, December 29, 2020.

There are no probable or suspected cases of COVID-19 among our residents or staff at this time.

I am pleased to report that our COVID-19 staff surveillance testing completed on December 22 and December 23, 2020, resulted in 100% negative results.

As the province is now in “Gray Lockdown”, in the collective approach to stopping the spread of COVID-19, we ask that our essential caregivers consider carefully their decision to visit their loved one at this time.  Community transmission of COVID-19 is at an all-time high and we ask you to consider limiting visits to the home to reduce possible exposure points to the residents.

Caregiver COVID-19 testing dates for January will be sent out in a separate email, and posted at the screening station.  A reminder to all caregivers that we do not control response time for results to the home or the public reporting website.  We ask for your continued patience and understanding.  Lab capacity across the province dictates turnaround times.  We continue to advocate for faster access to results.

For those having their COVID-19 tests completed offsite, please submit your test results to admin.assistant@mccormickcare.ca

Have a wonderful day.

Thank you,
Tanya Pol
