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.
