Public Health continues to be involved and provide direction, including testing for residents and employees. To date, we have not been notified of any additional positive results.

Additionally, in consultation with our internal Infection Prevention and Control Specialist and our occupational health team, we have implemented an internal contact tracing and risk assessment protocol. Where results of our risk assessment indicate, we implement additional infection control precautions and monitoring measures, above and beyond those required by Public Health, in order to further protect our residents and employees. We continue to engage with Public Health throughout this process.
