We became aware this morning that a health-care worker at Actionmarguerite St. Vital, 450 River Road, tested positive for COVID-19. Their last day worked was January 3rd. 2021. The person had worked evenings on the third floor.  We have therefore declared an outbreak on the 3rd floor until further notice.

Our contact tracing and risk assessment has begun.  We are still assessing residents or staff at risk.  All essential caregiver visits have been suspended for the entire facility until further notice.  This allows for a complete risk assessment.  We will be contacting the residents and families on the unit 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.

Please be assured that we are implementing quickly all precautions and procedures related to our pandemic plan.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please email info@actionmarguerite.ca.
