Hello Family and Friends,

We are happy to announce that the COVID-19 swabs we did yesterday for some of our residents in Independent Living & Assisted Living building have come back NEGATIVE. 

As communicated yesterday, we were informed by Fraser Health that we had an exposure to Fraser Health colleague that tested positive for COVID-19.  We received the swab results today and are relieved all of our residents remain COVID-free.

Visits

All Essential Visits may resume at this time.

Please be aware that we have set up a second Screener desk at the basement parkade entrance for anyone accessing our Residential Care, including Essential Visitors of our Residential Care residents.  This second Screener desk will remain in this location.  Please use your MESH building key cards to open the parkade gate, or request to be buzzed in at the intercom.

Residents in our Independent Living & Assisted Living building who have a spouse in Residential Care can resume visiting their spouse.

Window visits for any family members or friends may be scheduled with our Recreation Team at  mrsv-recreation@retirementconcepts.com.   Have to been to our new, cozy, visiting booth yet?  We built a little building in our Courtyard and cut out a window so our guests can stay warm and out of the wind during the visits.  Anyone can book a window visit, and bring the whole family – if you’re all in the same household!

Communication

We will go back to our regular weekly communication at this time.

 

We wish to thank staff, residents and families for their cooperation and understanding yesterday.  We are all doing our part to keep this virus out of our building.

Sincerely,

The Maple Ridge Seniors Village Leadership Team and Staff
