COVID-19 Update: April 23, 2020 – Community Report

April 23, 2020

We remain committed to providing open communication about our response to the COVID-19 pandemic and how it is affecting our communities. Our priority will always be to first share information with residents, families and our team members. We will also share Community Reports regularly on our website.

It saddens us to report that a resident from the Fishermen’s Cove neighbourhood at Harbourstone Enhanced Care has passed away. This resident had tested positive last week and was being cared for in our designated care/cohorting area at Harbourstone.

We offer our sincerest condolences to the resident’s loved ones at this very difficult time. As a well-loved member of the Harbourstone community, this resident will be greatly missed by many team members.
Our teams continue to monitor and test additional residents in all our communities as needed. We have no additional resident cases to report and the two previously reported confirmed positive residents living with us at this time are being cared for by dedicated team members in our designated care/cohorting areas.

We continue to evolve our COVID-19 response with extensive protection measures in place including daily temperature checks for team members and twice daily temperature checks for residents, masks for all team members, appropriate use of PPE, enhanced cleaning, physical distancing, visitor restrictions and use of designated care/cohorting areas with dedicated staffing for residents with COVID-19.

We would like to recognize our team members who continue to play a critical role in providing care and comfort to residents during this unsettling time. We have also received excellent support and collaboration from our partners at Public Health, Department of Health and Wellness, the Nova Scotia Health Authority as well as our union partners.
