Presently, we are continuing to work through an outbreak in our Adult Health Services East service area – with a total of 10 people supported now testing positive and one employee. Our Infection Prevention & Control Nurse and Clinical Educator have been connecting with staff regularly to ensure our residents are well cared for, PPE practices are being maintained, and that hand hygiene and necessary precautions are attended.
