Our good news continues in that we have only two Residents on our 2nd floor who are testing positive for the COVID-19 virus. They are both doing well and are being isolated in their room to control/prevent any further spread.
Erring on the side of being über-cautious, we are discouraging visits to all our 2nd floor Residents as we neither want to have our visitors contract, nor subsequently pass on the virus to others in their own family/the broader community. We offer the assurance that this is only a temporary situation, and we are optimistic that by the issuance of our next communique (in about 5 to 7 days) and presuming no further Resident(s) test positive for the COVID-19 virus – all visitor limitations will be lifted.
In the meantime, visitation to our 3rd and 4th floor Residents is ongoing and as the weather is getting nicer (notwithstanding that Winnipeg is to be getting more rain tomorrow!), we are enjoying a steady stream of friendly folks coming to see their loved ones.
We also mention that, effectively immediately, children (with no age restriction) are welcome to visit.😊 Little ones of age 5 and up will be required to wear a mask when at our Home. On floor/Unit visitation remains restricted to 2 visitors per Resident at any one time (including if one of the two visitors is a child). Weather permitting, should you opt to visit outdoors, visitor numbers may be stretched up to 4 visitors (plus Resident) – presuming masks are worn, and you are able to social distance.
After what seems like a winter without end, we are starting to see green buds on trees and, SOON our outside courtyard will be taking shape with our canopies – we are aiming for all to be ready for outdoor visits right around, if not earlier than, the upcoming May long weekend (weather permitting). We promise that flowers will follow – once we know the threat of frost is past.
Wishing all a great remainder of your week! Keep healthy! Keep safe! AND just think – the official BBQ weather is coming!
