Athens – Maple View Lodge, the Counties long-term care home, has been placed in a Respiratory Outbreak by the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Health Unit. On April 3, one resident, and today, another two residents exhibited one or more upper respiratory symptoms. The three residents have been isolated in their rooms and families notified.
Samples have been taken and the results should be available in the next twenty-four (24) to forty-eight (48) hours.
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 is working 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.
