We learned a staff member testing positive for COVID-19 today. This staff person is not a direct care staff and was off for most of the period of communicability. Contact tracing has been completed.
We would like to remind all designated family caregivers to please follow all of the infection prevention and control protocols to keep everyone safe given the high positivity rate in Winnipeg and the increased presence of the variants of concern.
We are encouraging all designated family caregivers and all visitors to be vaccinated when there is an opportunity for their protection and the overall protection of the Home. The vaccine eligibility criteria has changed significantly and can be found at https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/vaccine/eligibility-criteria.html.
We thank you for your ongoing support and patience as we continue to work together to manage during these unprecedented times.
Please keep Holy Family Home in your thoughts and your prayers.
Tara-Lee Procter (Maciuszonek) – CEO
