The staff member who tested positive for the virus is in isolation at their home.

Fraser Health said it is working with staff to identify anyone who may have been exposed, and is taking steps to protect the health of all staff, residents and families.

In the meantime, Fraser Health has committed to maintaining staffing levels, restricting visitors, restricting the movement of staff and residents, enhanced cleaning and infection control measures, and twice-a-day screening of all staff and residents.

“During this time, Fraser Health has additional presence at the site to take any further actions required and to support each facility,” Fraser Health’s Aletta Vanderheyden said.

“This includes dedicated people to address quality, answer questions from staff, residents and family, and provide active checks of symptoms with staff and residents.”
