McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update
Monday, June 8, 2020
This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Monday, June 08, 2020. We will continue to provide these updates every Monday, Wednesday and Friday as needed.
There are no probable or suspected cases of COVID-19 among our residents or staff at this time.
As previously communicated, the Ministry of Long Term Care is mandating continued testing of long term care home staff for COVID-19. The Ministry has indicated that testing a minimum of two times should occur in the month of June. Our first round of testing will take place this week from Wednesday, June 10 to Friday, June 12, 2020, for staff who are not displaying any symptoms. If a staff member has any symptoms associated with COVID-19, they are required to be tested at an outside assessment centre to reduce the risk to the home. This is a continuation of our current practice. We will advise you of the results of our staff testing as soon as they become available.
