Update December 5, 2022

We are pleased to report that the Influenza Outbreak on 2 South at Lee Manor has been declared over. We would like to thank Grey Bruce Public Health for their assistance in managing the outbreak. The teamwork at Lee Manor has been remarkable, and we thank them for their dedication and commitment. The team quickly identified symptoms and prevented further spread using ongoing infection prevention and control measures.
 
We continue to focus on the safety of our residents, families, and staff, as a precaution we will continue with the following protocols:

  • Hand hygiene audits
  • Daily screening and rapid antigen testing for all staff, students, support workers, volunteers, Designated Care Partners, and indoor visitors.

Visiting has now resumed on all home areas. Masks continue to be required indoors for staff, visitors and others entering long-term care homes. Although masks are not required when caregivers or visitors are alone with residents in their rooms, we support the Chief Medical Officer of Health's recommendation and strongly encourage that caregivers and visitors wear their masks at all times during their visit. 

The safety and wellbeing of our residents, families, and staff is our focus. Please continue to follow the 3Ws: Wash your hands frequently; Watch your distance (ideally 6 feet); and Wear masks correctly. Please do not visit the home if you are feeling unwell.
