Status Update

Regarding the status of the eight impacted residents at Dufferin Care Centre, they are doing well and their respective families have all been contacted with an update on their loved-one. We have been notified that the swab results are NEGATIVE for COVID-19. Families of the residents who were swabbed have been notified.

All other 147 residents present NO COVID-19 signs or symptoms.


We continue to communicate with all families via e-mail. We will also continue to call family members of the eight directly impacted residents, by phone – on Monday’s, Wednesday’s, and Friday’s. If there are any changes between these calls, families will be updated immediately.

We continue to post daily updates on the Retirement Concepts Facebook Page.
