Dear Residents, Families, Community Partners and Staff;
We have been working diligently to protect the health and well-being of our residents and staff. Our infection prevention and control practices have been very effective in keeping the virus away since the pandemic began.
Late yesterday, we learned that one staff member has tested positive for COVID-19, and as a result, Public Health has declared Sunshine Centre in outbreak. We have notified all residents and their families. The outbreak protocols do not affect our Atrium Suite and Garden Villa residents.
This is our first case, and the risk of spread is low due to the strict protocols we put in place early in the pandemic. The systems we established include scheduling staff exclusively to designated floors and directing staff to wear full personal protective equipment well in advance of provincial directives.
We are working closely with Public Health and our primary focus is the wellbeing of our residents and staff. With your help, I am confident in our ability to manage this situation.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
