Today, we had a resident on 4 East develop symptoms and subsequently tested them, the result just returned positive, so we have moved the individual to 1 East, our COVID-19 unit for isolation and further treatment. We have had a total of 17 residents from 4 East test positive. We have one recovered resident that has completed their quarantine, is asymptomatic and was moved back to 4 East today. We have had 4 staff test positive throughout this outbreak, 2 contracted agency staff and 2 members of our own team who had previously worked on 1East/4East. Due to the most recent positive test, we have made the decision to add an additional round of testing on Monday for residents on 4 East and staff working on both 4 East and 1 East. We will still be testing as originally planned on Thursday. We continue with diligent PPE use, hand hygiene, social distancing and increased disinfection throughout the building. We will continue provide updates as we know more.
