We are pleased to report that currently we have no known cases of Covid-19 involving residents or staff. While the news is positive, we are seeing a rise in variant cases in the province. There is no guarantee that the vaccines work for these variants so it is important that we all remain diligent in our PPE practices. The vaccine should protect people from severe complications in the event they become Covid-19 positive. In response to Dr. Hinshaws latest order, in the event staff or residents are tested positive for any of the variants we are required to isolate residents and restrict visitation. Thank you for your ongoing support.

We are confident that we are seeing the end of this outbreak however there is some concern relative to the new variants as well as the relaxation of lock downs. As a result, we plan to remain diligent with respect to our processes. We would like to thank our excellent staff for their continued hard work as well as the families of our residents for their tremendous support.
