McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update
Saturday, September 4, 2021
This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Saturday, September 4, 2021.
The results of PCR tests for residents from Willow Ridge, Evergreen Walk, Maple Grove and Memory Lane are in, and we are pleased to report that they all are negative!
Unfortunately, one additional staff member has tested positive for COVID-19. This staff member is asymptomatic and a repeat PCR is being conducted to confirm the result. Unfortunately, this staff member worked on Oak Avenue within the last 48 hours.
While we await the results of the second PCR test, the health unit has instructed us to test all residents on Oak Avenue as well as all staff who worked in that home area between August 31 and September 2, 2021. We are placing our Oak Avenue residents in isolation as a precautionary measure at this time.
Please note that with this possible third positive staff case, the outbreak may be extended for all floors.
An update will be provided as soon as possible.
