Dear Actionmarguerite St. Vital Residents and Families,

Today we are writing to advise you that we have declared a COVID-19 outbreak on both the first and second floor at Actionmarguerite St. Vital.

The following outbreak measures are in place for the first and second floor:

  • General visitors are asked to defer their visits.
  • Essential visitors are invited to come at their own risk. If the resident you are visiting is on the affected units, we will provide you with a mask and eye protection. Should you be visiting a resident who has symptoms, we will provide you with a gown and gloves.
  • Masks and eye protection will be available at the front entrance. Please put these on before visiting the affected units.
  • When you arrive on the unit, please report to the nursing station, additional supplies will be available on the unit as well.
  • We are actively monitoring all residents for any signs of illness.
  • Cleaning of high-touch surfaces, common areas, and residents’ rooms has been increased.
  • Asymptomatic residents may continue to:
  • Participate in group activities and spiritual care services on the unit.
  • Use the dining room on the unit.
  • Leave for outside events such as medical and other appointments and family outings. When exiting the facility, residents are encouraged to wear a mask and perform hand hygiene.
  • All residents will be able to attend essential medical appointments. Symptomatic residents will be required to wear a mask and perform hand hygiene when leaving their room if in isolation.
  • Off-unit activities including visitation, hairdressing appointments, and mass will need to be deferred for residents of affected units.
  • One-on-one activities such as spiritual care, recreation, and other activities will be offered to residents who are symptomatic as feasible.

We would like to take this opportunity to share these reminders regarding the importance of adhering to infection prevention and control measures.


  • Self-monitor for signs and symptoms of illness and stay home if you are ill;
  • Wash or sanitize your hands thoroughly and often,
  • Protect yourself by using the personal protective equipment for your visit on the 1st and 2nd floors as recommended by the staff.

Please email if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your collaboration.
