St. Vincent's: Brock Fahrni - September 13, 2021
Dear Families and Residents of Brock Fahrni,
Please be advised that the COVID-19 outbreak on the third floor at Brock Fahrni has been declared over by Public Health.
The outbreak had resulted in a total of nine residents testing positive for COVID. We are deeply saddened by the two resident deaths that resulted from the outbreak.
Visitation to all of Brock Fahrni – including the 3rd Floor and Peach Tree neighbourhood – can resume, Tuesday, September 14th. We are looking forward to the return of family and friends. Please be advised of the following visitor guidelines:
- Visits do not need to be booked in advance. We welcome visitors between the hours of 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
- All visitors must wear a mask in common spaces, including multi-bed rooms.
- Visitors who have provided proof of full vaccination can remove their mask in private rooms, designated visiting areas, and outdoors.
- Virtual visits will continue to be offered and can be booked through the nursing station.
All group activities for seniors on the 3rd Floor can also resume as per normal. We will continue to follow provincial Public Health COVID-19 guidelines and policies in all our activities and operation, and maintain vigilance in protecting residents and staff.
Thank you for your cooperation during the outbreak. COVID outbreaks can be emotionally challenging for all involved and your patience and understanding were of great assistance in managing the outbreak.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do reach out to me.
