McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Tuesday February 23, 2021

This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Tuesday, February 23, 2021.

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

Thank you to all of you who joined the Family ZOOM call yesterday. The minutes from the meeting will be circulated with the email version of this update. In response to questions raised, the frequency of Rapid Antigen Tests for caregivers as outlined in the Minister’s Directive is as follows;

• For caregivers visiting the home three or more times per week – a Rapid Antigen Test every other day, to a maximum of three tests per week.
• For caregivers visiting the home one or two days per week – a Rapid Antigen Test on the “day of” of each visit.

In all cases, tests must be taken, yielding negative test results, prior to any contact with residents.

Hairdressing services will resume on Wednesday, March 3, 2021. If you want your loved one to receive hairdressing services, please contact Nita at the front reception at admin.assistant@mccormickcare.ca or by calling her at 519-432-2648 Ext. 2300.

Thank you again for all your patience and understanding as we navigate through these changes together,
