Outbreak Update #5 – October 27, 2020
We are pleased to report that there have been no additional positive Covid results for our Residents or staff.
Our Resident who tested positive for Covid remains isolated in our Covid unit and is being cared for by staff dedicated solely for this unit.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Corinna (RN), Lindsay (LPN), Roma (LPN) and Sara (RN) who volunteered to work in our Covid unit. This selfless act is appreciated by all! Check out our Facebook page to see pictures of our Simkin Hero’s in yellow gowns. www.facebook.com/simkincentre
