COVID-19 Update Jan 5 2022-2

McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update #2

Wednesday, January 5, 2022

This is a second McCormick Care Group update for Wednesday, January 05, 2022.

After consultation with the health unit this afternoon, a respiratory outbreak, with an unknown pathogen, has been declared in Willow Ridge.  A respiratory outbreak is defined as 2 or more cases in a 24 hour period.  This is an evolving situation. To date, we have 4 residents and 2 staff displaying respiratory symptoms. Two of the resident PCR tests have returned with a negative COVID result; the remaining results are still pending.

Once we know the specific pathogen, an update on the impact on Willow Ridge will be shared.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
