We are very pleased to see a reduction in new Covid-19 cases in British Columbia. It is, however, important to remember that there are still active confirmed cases in BC. Given the tragic effects that this virus can have on vulnerable seniors, we have to stay vigilant.
We are still happy to tell you that there are no cases of reported outbreak nor signs nor symptoms of COVID-19 in any of our residents or staff here at Rosemary Heights Seniors’ Village. Should the status of our community change in any respect, please know we will immediately contact families.
We continue to follow the direction of our public health officials to the letter and have full infection prevention and control precautions in place. Staff continue to monitor residents closely and are ensuring the following protocols are being adhered to.
Access to Rosemary Heights
Just a reminder to everyone that we remain on lockdown at Rosemary Heights Seniors Village. We continue to ask everyone to be respectful of this measure as it is for resident and staff safety. At NO time is visiting in our main door way or outside an option. Even if physical distancing and PPE is used. The Public Health Officer in BC is stating we still need to have these measures in place.
You will be asked to leave immediately if these precautionary measures are not followed. Thank you for your understanding and helping put your family members and our staff’s health and safety first.
