We are pleased to inform you there were no additional residents test positive today. Currently there are 84 residents recovered from the infectious period of the virus and recuperating, 12 active resident cases, 1 resident in hospital and sadly nineteen residents have passed away. There have been a total of 116 residents test positive for COVID-19. Our thoughts are with these residents for their improved strength and ongoing recovery.
There was one additional staff person who tested positive for COVID-19 today. We have had 37 staff members of the 46 who have tested positive for COVID-19 recover. We look forward to the safe return of our staff and to their recovery.
Holy Family Home has agreed, in consultation with the Board Chairperson and the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate, to provide temporary accommodation to residents of a First Nations personal care home needing to evacuate from their home community. These residents will be staying in a vacant floor of the B building isolated from the residents and staff of the Home. The evacuated residents will be accompanied by the care staff familiar with their care needs. The ongoing staffing will be provided by their home community and with the collaboration and support of the WRHA. The entrance and exit of the staff will be separate from the front entrance of the Home. Holy Family Home, the First Nation community and the WRHA will be working together to ensure there is no increased risk to the residents and staff of Holy Family Home. There are also processes and supplies to provide safe care for the evacuated residents. Caring for others is in alignment with the mission of the Home and during these very challenging times, providing support to those in need of assistance is more important than ever.
We will contact you directly should there be any issue with your loved one.
Please keep Holy Family Home in your thoughts and your prayers.
