Outbreak Update – Daily Update
The homes noted below are in a confirmed COVID-19 outbreak.
Craiglee Nursing Home, Scarborough, ON
- 36 residents and 7 staff members have tested positive for COVID-19. The staff members are currently isolating and recovering at home. It is with deep sadness that we share that 11 residents have passed as a result of this virus.
Southbridge Roseview, Thunder Bay, ON
- 14 residents and 4 staff members have tested positive for COVID-19. These staff members are currently isolating and recovering at home.
We are testing our staff members at a minimum of every two weeks at these homes. With community spread still being a major concern, this regular testing will help us detect new positive staff or asymptomatic staff early and limit the risk of potential exposure to our residents.
We are working closely with Public Health, with our Medical Directors, our Epidemiologist and with Extendicare’s Infection Prevention and Control specialists and are following their directives. As well, our enhanced infection prevention and control measures remain in place such as symptom screening our residents and team members a minimum of twice daily, terminal cleaning of high-touch surfaces, ensuring that all our staff is wearing masks and personal protective equipment and revisiting our infection prevention and control protocols to ensure they are being followed. We are also hiring more staff to help ensure that we can uphold the high standard of care we are proud of providing to our residents.
