McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Tuesday February 25, 2021

This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Thursday, February 25, 2021.

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

The revised Family Caregiver Education Package and home policies have been uploaded to the McCormick Home website which reflect the changes associated with the introduction of Rapid Antigen Testing. If you are an approved essential caregiver, please ensure you review these prior to your next acknowledgement of understanding that is due at the beginning of March 2021. This is required to meet your ongoing education requirements as essential caregivers.

Effective Sunday, February 28, 2021 through to March 14, 2021 caregivers can commence the rapid testing on site, up to a maximum of three times per week, or can provide evidence of a PCR test, and one rapid test on site, as per the Minister’s Directive. Effective March 15, 2021 the only acceptable form of testing will be rapid testing. Testing will be available between 8:00am- 8:00pm, seven days per week. If you are visiting in the evening please arrive at the home no later than 7:30pm to allow for your test to be processed.

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

Have a wonderful day,

Tanya Pol,
Administrator
