It is with a heavy heart that we share of the passing of a resident at Fairfield Park who had tested positive for COVID-19. The leadership team at Fairfield Park shares our deepest condolences with the family, friends and team members carrying the weight of this loss today.
We are working closely with our local Public Health unit and our health system partners to manage the COVID-19 outbreak in our home and curb the spread of infection. We have implemented and continue to follow all new and ongoing infection prevention and control measures as directed by the province. These ongoing measures include the use of appropriate personal protective equipment at all times, enhanced cleaning measures, twice daily symptom monitoring of all residents and staff, and isolating residents to their rooms with in-room meal service. In addition, we are continuing weekly testing of residents and staff.
During this difficult time, everyone at Fairfield Park continues to do everything they can to ensure that the safety and wellbeing of staff and residents are maintained. We appreciate your continued support during this time.
