Huron Lodge Staff Cleared Through Additional COVID-19 Testing
Earlier this week, the City of Windsor reported that a staff member at the City’s long-term care home, Huron Lodge had received a positive test result for COVID-19. To mitigate any potential risk to residents and staff at the home, and to allow for adequate investigation by health care professionals, outdoor family visits were immediately suspended, while window visits and technology-enabled visits continued. However, a second and third round of testing on the staff member produced negative results, and at no time did the individual show any COVID-19 symptoms.
As a result of receiving confirmation that further tests were negative, outdoor visits are once again being allowed at Huron Lodge. Due to thorough protocols put in place that continue throughout this pandemic, an investigation by health officials confirmed that Huron Lodge did not qualify for outbreak status.
We thank our families and residents for their patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.
The health, safety and wellbeing of the residents and staff is, and always will be, the number one priority.
