We became aware today, November 20th, of a health-care worker at Actionmarguerite St. Vital, 450 River Road, tested positive for COVID-19. Their last day worked was November 17th, 2020. The person had worked days on the second and third floors.  We have therefore declared an outbreak on the 2nd floor and extended the outbreak on the 3rd floor until further notice.

Our contact tracing and risk assessment will continue.  We identified 10 residents on the 2nd floor and 9 residents on the 3rd floor as medium risk.  All other residents are considered low risk (no contact).

We have contacted all the families affected to inform them of our risk assessment.  We will test residents who show any sign of symptoms. Families will be called if the resident is at risk or is tested at any time. We continue to actively screen and monitor employees to see if testing is required.

Please be assured that we moved quickly to enact precautions and implemented all procedures related to our pandemic plan.  If you have questions specific to the resident’s health condition, please contact the nursing staff on the unit. If you have any other questions or concerns, please email info@actionmarguerite.ca.
