McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Monday January 4, 2021

This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Monday, January 04, 2021.

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

We have started to receive information related to the Moderna vaccine, which is intended for residents of long-term care homes across Ontario.  We have yet to receive confirmation of the time that McCormick Home will be provided with the vaccine. However, we have been asked by the Middlesex London Health Unit to begin planning for an accelerated roll out.  The health unit is preparing an information package to assist families and residents in their decision making. Once we receive this package, we will distribute it to you through an update.  In the meantime, we are providing the following link to the Health Canada website where you can find an overview of the Moderna vaccine.

In the collective approach to stopping the spread of COVID-19, we ask that our essential caregivers consider carefully their decision to visit their loved one at this time.  Community transmission of COVID-19 is at an all-time high and we ask you to consider limiting visits to the home to reduce possible exposure points to the residents.

Have a wonderful day,
