Peace Portal Seniors Village – UPDATE – Sunday September 27, 2020
As we have advised you previously, Peace Portal Seniors Village has two confirmed positive Covid 19 tests results. One is for a Staff Member, and the second for a Resident.
The Staff Member is currently home and in self-isolation.
The Resident is also in isolation, and their family has been contacted.
All other staff and residents of Peace Portal Seniors Village are in the process of being tested.
We understand this news creates concerns, and we share these concerns. Caring for our Community is our top priority. As well, we are doing our best to keep the spirits of our residents up because when they are happy, we are happy…
At present, we are continuing to work with Fraser Heath Authority to establish contact tracing, and particularly to establish what level of contact, if any, may have occurred between the two individuals as well as fellow staff members and residents.
All residents of our Peace Portal community have been placed in isolation in their respective rooms where they receive meals by tray service, and are monitored closely. Staff have also been grouped into cohorts working on a specific floor, and not facility-wide.
Until further notice, the dining room is closed, family visitations are cancelled and all group activities are suspended.
As is our protocol, in the event of any positive test, we will continue to provide families with a daily email update. Should the condition of any specific resident change, their family will be notified immediately.
To inquire about facetime/skype or phone calls, please contact: Sandra Kaethler firstname.lastname@example.org.
BC’s Medical Health Officer has been notified, and the Peace Portal Seniors Village is following protocols established by Fraser Health Authority, the Office of the Provincial Health Officer and the BC Center for Disease Control.
We will continue to act upon the latest advice of BC’s Health Ministry and will adapt our operations as necessary and recommended. At this point, Fraser Health Authority recommends a 28-day Outbreak Period.
All deliveries will be received at the lobby entrance vestibule – This includes medication deliveries from pharmacies, gifts (Please only items that can be sanitized) and mail. All items will be sanitized and delivered directly to the residents’ suite.
