It is with great pleasure that I can announce the outbreak in our home is over!
Earlier this morning, Public Health confirmed with our Director of Care that all residents have been free of symptoms for 14 or more days.
Despite today’s positive news, all ongoing infection control and prevention measures will remain in place to ensure the continued health and safety of our residents and staff. The home will remain closed to non-essential visitors, and meals will continue to be served to residents in their rooms. We’ll continue our daily screening procedures, and residents will be asked to remain in their rooms unless out for walks. We are continuing to deep clean all resident areas in the building thanks to the support of Ross Memorial Hospital’s Environmental Services team and asking our staff to continue to wear full PPE during this process.
The COVID-19 pandemic is the greatest challenge we have seen in our home. I want to thank the Bobcaygeon community, our dedicated staff, residents’ families, and health system partners for their support. I’ve mentioned previously that we will get through the outbreak by standing together, and today, this has proven true.
I will continue to provide updates to the community as needed, but this is what our care team has been working toward since March 20. Thank you for your patience, support, love, and generosity since day one.
