Dear Actionmarguerite St. Boniface Residents and Families,

We are writing to you about a presumed respiratory outbreak on unit 3DE.

The following measures are in place for unit 3DE ONLY:

  • Visits from general visitors are on hold at this time.
  • Essential visitors are welcome to visit at their own risk and will be provided with protective equipment. Visits will need to take place in the resident’s room.
  • Increased monitoring of all residents for symptoms is taking place.
  • Cleaning of high touch surfaces, common areas and residents’ rooms has been enhanced.
  • Movement of residents is limited to their unit, as much as possible.
  • Group activities and communal dining will continue on the unit for residents who are asymptomatic.
  • One-to-one activities and one-to-one spiritual care will be offered to residents who are symptomatic.
  • Short stay absences and social leaves are on hold except for medical appointments.
  • Hairdressing services are cancelled until further notice.

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

  • Self-monitor for signs and symptoms of illness and stay home if you are ill;
  • Use the personal protective equipment provided when you visit; and
  • Sanitize your hands thoroughly and often.

Please email if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your collaboration..

With regards,

The Actionmarguerite Team
