Due to a number of residents experiencing upper respiratory symptoms at Rainycrest Long-Term Care, the Northwestern Health Unit has declared an outbreak.
As such, family members are asked to restrict their visits to the resident’s room (not in common area) and refrain from visiting other residents while there.
Children less than 12 years of age also should refrain from visiting.
This visiting restriction will be in place until further notice.
Meanwhile, Activation will be conducting small, isolated group activities for those residents not experiencing respiratory symptoms.
Do not visit if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
•stuffy nose/sore throat;
•fatigue and weakness
Visitors are asked to use the hand sanitizers provided throughout Rainycrest, especially at the entrance when you enter and exit the building.
The Outbreak Management Team at Rainycrest will continue to monitor the situation.
A further update will be provided at a later date.
