Sunday, January 9, 2022
This is a McCormick Care Group update for Sunday, January 09, 2022
We have just received confirmation from the Middlesex-London Health unit that the outbreak on Memory Lane has been declared over! While the health unit declared the outbreak over, we have a few residents who will remain in isolation for monitoring. The families of those residents who were identified as having a high-risk exposure to one staff who tested positive, were notified yesterday. Thank you to all of the staff for their dedication and support over the past 10 days. Thank you as well to all of the caregivers who came in to assist during these challenging times.
Update on Evergreen Walk
The residents and staff from Evergreen Walk will undergo PCR testing again tomorrow, Monday, January 10, 2022. There are two additional residents who have mild symptoms; PCR results are pending.
We have placed Willow Ridge back into outbreak status. We have 5 residents in the last 24 hours who have developed cold-like symptoms. Tests continue to come back negative for COVID-19. We have requested full respiratory testing to try and determine the exact pathogen. Residents will remain in their rooms at this time. Essential caregivers will be limited to one at a time. Thank you for your understanding. The safety of the residents and staff remain our priority.
Please continue to be diligent following all public health measures including masking, physical distancing and hand hygiene.
