We are pleased to inform you there were no additional residents test positive today. Currently there are 91 residents recovered from the infectious period of the virus and recuperating, 6 active resident cases, no residents in hospital and sadly nineteen residents have passed away. There have been a total of 116 residents test positive for COVID-19. Our thoughts and prayers are with these residents for their improved strength and ongoing recovery.
There were two additional staff persons who tested positive for COVID-19. We have had 42 staff members of the 48 who have tested positive for COVID-19 recover. We look forward to the safe return of our staff and to their recovery.
To provide further clarification regarding Holy Family Home providing accommodation for residents needing to evacuate from their home community, the decision was made in consultation with the Chair of the Holy Family Board and the Sister Servants of Mary Immaculate. We apologize for any confusion. There have been many questions regarding the accommodation being provided. These relocated residents are staying on a vacant floor in a building that has been vacant other than the area in use as the COVID-19 unit at Holy Family Home. It is a completely different floor of the vacant building and separate from the rest of the facility. Staff are being provided from the home community and there have been processes implemented to ensure the separation of the areas. Access to the area being utilized is via a separate entrance which is being monitored. We are working closely with the WRHA, Shared Health and the Management from the First Nation community to provide quality care for these residents while ensuring the safety of all of those at Holy Family Home.
We are grateful the messages of support and for the kindness shown by many. It is so very appreciated.
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.
