Progress continues at Tendercare to resolve outbreak
The outbreak management at Tendercare Living Centre continues to move in the right direction with continued improvements in all areas including maintaining staffing levels, ensuring infection prevention and control practices and standards are met, and a high level of clinical care and
support for residents.
Starting this Sunday, January 10 and throughout the following week, Tendercare residents, staff and essential caregivers who wish to be vaccinated will receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Today, there are no new resident COVID-19 cases and no new staff cases. There continues to be 23 active resident cases in the home and 86 resolved cases today, indicating that it has been 10 days since their lab test confirming COVID-19 and the individual is no longer showing COVID-19 symptoms.
Another encouraging sign is that there have been no COVID-19-related deaths today. The total number of individuals who have died from COVID- 19 during the outbreak remains 73.
Also today, 80 staff have resolved cases and 42 have returned to work at the home with more returning in the coming days.
