Athens – Maple View Lodge, the Counties long-term care home, was placed in a Respiratory Outbreak by the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Health Unit on April 3. A total of four residents exhibited one or more upper respiratory symptoms. The residents were isolated in their rooms and families notified.
Earlier this week, the test results for two of the residents were received – both negative meaning no COVID-19. Today, the Lodge received the final two results and both are
negative. “This is excellent news, and I’m so happy for the residents, families and staff at Maple View Lodge” says Warden Pat Sayeau upon being notified.
Both our residents and staff are monitored twice daily as a preventative measure. Staff have implemented enhanced monitoring and screening of all residents during this
COVID-19 pandemic. They watch for anyone with a fever, onset of a new or exacerbated cough, and all other COVID-19 symptoms.
The Counties will continue to work in close partnership with our public health unit and our medical director to ensure every possible step is taken to protect our residents. The health and safety of our residents, and the team members who serve them, is our highest priority.
