COVID-19 Virus Update – The Convalescent Home of Winnipeg

Good day.

Today, management of The Convalescent Home of Winnipeg became aware of two staff members who have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.

At this time, we are pending test results of two Residents on our 4th floor. If any other of our Residents do start to exhibit symptoms, we will immediately test him/her and provide further notification to families/friends. We continue to screen all staff to see if further testing is required.

If your own loved one is tested at any time, you will be contacted directly.

Be assured that we have moved quickly to enact even tighter infection control precautions that will prevent any further spread of illness, including (but not limited to):

Our prayers are with our Residents, staff and all personal care homes that are experiencing an outbreak, as well with each and every individual/family in our community who are or have been impacted by COVID-19/its variants. This virus, in particular, the Omicron variant, must be treated seriously. However, we cannot lose hope. If it helps to bring hope to even just a few – I promise to keep our “Christmas tree” up until we beat this virus!

Keep strong! Keep health-safe! Keep believing in better days!

Warmest regards,

Sherry Heppner
Development Coordinator
