Update on seven residents and ten COVID-positive staff members

at Hope Street Terrace

 In line with our commitment to provide timely and transparent updates, we would like to share that we received confirmation from the public health unit that seven residents and ten members of our staff have tested positive for COVID-19. This was detected by our regular nasal swab surveillance testing. These staff members are currently isolating and recovering at home. It is with deep sadness that we share that 2 residents have passed as a result of this virus.

All staff are required to participate in surveillance testing as directed by the local public health unit.

With community spread 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 are wearing masks and personal protective equipment and revisiting our infection prevention and control protocols to ensure they are being religiously followed.
