Outbreak and Infection Update February 10 2023

McCormick Care Group – Update

Friday, February 10, 2023

This is a McCormick Care Group update for Friday, February 10, 2023.

The Middlesex-London Health Unit has declared a suspect enteric outbreak on Evergreen Walk.  Ill residents will be isolated to their rooms for 48 hours after their last symptoms of nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.  Meals will continue to be served in the dining room for all other residents and group activities will continue on Evergreen Walk.

The Health Unit is recommending that residents of Evergreen Walk remain in their home area and not attend programs on other units or in the Great Room for now. There are no visitor restrictions at this time and well residents can leave for medical appointments and outings.

I am pleased to report that there are no new cases of respiratory illness on Maple Grove.  We are hopeful that that suspect outbreak will be declared over next week.

Please remember to exercise good hand hygiene if you are visiting and just a reminder that full PPE is required when visiting an ill resident.
