The following is update #3 of the current COVID-19 resident outbreak at Actionmarguerite St. Boniface, 185 Despins.

The total is number of residents in the COVID AREA 19 is now up to eleven (11).  Ten (10) are from 3DE and one (1) from 2DE.   We sadly had one death.

We have received the results of ALL the swabs taken of the residents on 3DE.  They were all negative.  We continue to monitor for symptoms and we will swab again residents who display any symptoms.  We are assuming that all remaining on 3DE may be positive for the duration of the outbreak.

We have also received some of the results of the 2DE residents.  So far all results have been negative.  We are waiting on an additional ten (10) tests results.

All Essential Care Giver visits and Shelter Visits at 185 Despins will be suspended up to and including February 22, 2021. Note that it has not be determined yet if visitation will be allowed next week.  We will confirm this date next Monday.

End of life exceptions will be permitted.
