Dear Families and Residents of Kamloops Seniors Village,

Please be advised that on Monday October 11, 2021 we were informed that one of our fully vaccinated Complex Care staff members who last worked on our 1A neighbourhood October 6, 2021 had tested positive for COVID 19.  We have since been notified of a separate second fully vaccinated staff member that last worked on Complex Care 2C on October 9, 2021 has tested positive for COVID-19. Both had contracted the virus from within the Kamloops community.

Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, the Health Authority & MHO have placed exposure restrictions at this time, that will be in place at minimum until October 20, 2021, or until Interior Health provides clearance to lift the restrictions.

The following restrictions for Complex Care 1A & 2C Neighbourhoods are now in effect:

At this time, we have no residents or additional staff symptomatic, however, we have implemented our enhanced cleaning and exposure protocols. Our clinical team is in contact with Interior Health for daily check-in calls.

Asymptomatic PCR testing will be conducted of any partially vaccinated staff and residents that were potentially exposed on either October 6 (1A) or October 9 (2C). Fully vaccinated staff and residents will continue to be monitored for symptoms.

This exposure event does not impact the Assisted-Independent Living side of the building.

Updates will continue to be communicated to you, which will also be posted to the Community Update Section of our Website.  If you have other family or friends who would like to be updated, please feel free to direct them to www.retirementconcepts.com.

Deliveries

All deliveries continue to be received.  All items will be sanitized and delivered directly to the resident’s suites.

Sincerely, The Kamloops Team
