McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update
Monday, January 10, 2022
This is a McCormick Care Group update for Monday, January 10, 2022.
The nursing leadership team has just completed PCR testing of the residents on Evergreen Walk. Unfortunately, we have had several residents test positive over the weekend, and we now have 10 active resident cases. Overall, the residents are stable at this time. An outbreak resolution date has yet to be confirmed, and updates will be provided when more information is available.
As you are aware, Willow Ridge has had several residents experiencing cold symptoms this past week, and resident testing did not confirm any known pathogens. Unfortunately, one of the resident PCR swabs came back positive for COVID-19. All residents in the home area were swabbed this morning to determine if there has been any spread of the virus. An update will be provided as soon as we have more information. Residents remain in isolation, and caregivers are limited to one essential caregiver at a time.
Please continue to be diligent following all public health measures, including masking, physical distancing and hand hygiene.
