On Friday, May 1st, all residents and staff at Dundas Manor were tested for the COVID-19 virus. This proactive testing was mandated by the Chief Medical Officer of Health. Every person tested was asymptomatic for COVID-19, meaning they showed no symptoms of being affected by the virus. However, some people can still carry the virus without showing outward signs.
The results have been received and no residents or staff have tested positive for COVID-19 virus. “These results are a wonderful confirmation of how effective everyone’s planning and efforts have been over the past two months and I want to thank the Dundas Manor team,” notes Cholly Boland, CEO. “The results only reflect our testing status as of last Friday. We will continue our vigilance and if residents and staff display any symptoms of illness, they will be tested.”
“The health and safety of our residents and staff are our number one priority and we will continue to take every precaution to keep them safe,” adds Administrator Susan Poirier.
