January 31, 2021 Update for Residents, Families and Friends

 

Dr Bonnie Henry announced that due to the vaccine shortage, there will be a delay in delivering the second dose. If you have already received your first dose of the vaccine, we will contact you to book your second dose of the vaccine as soon as we hear from Fraser Health with confirmed dates

 

For any essential visitors that have not already had their first vaccine, Fraser health has asked us to pause booking for the vaccine until further notice.

 

Essential visitors remain a high priority group to receive COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccination clinics for essential visitors will be announced as soon as we receive more COVID-19 vaccine.

We would like to recognize our amazing staff here at WRSV Thank you for everything you do at WRSV. We have another Covid Prevention Audit and the FHA Licensing Officer if very pleased with how organized everything is. She commented that the residents look well cared for, the environment is clean and the staff is doing a great job.

 

We remain Covid free. There are no more positive cases. And we passed our audit today we can hope to be released from Enhanced Monitoring within the next few days

 

All staff and residents that were tested are negative for COVID-19.

 

WRSV is currently following Fraser Health procedures for Enhanced Monitoring for exposures of Covid-19. Removal from enhanced monitoring is up to the Health authority and contingent on no further cases of COVID-19 occurring at our site for a period of time.
