The outbreak has been isolated t o1F and we have implemented a number of enhanced protocols on 1F to bring resolution as quickly as possible, including;

  • Active, enhanced surveillance to identify potential cases and follow-up investigations.
  • More frequent cleaning of high-touch surfaces in the hospital.
  • Cohorting staff to one unit where possible.
  • Education of COVID-19 hospital protocols.
  • As part of ongoing risk assessments, continually reviewing our practices and implementing new measures as required.
  • Limiting admissions as much as possible and if admitted, ensuring patients are cohorted geographically with non exposed staff in collaboration with Infection, Prevention and Control and Occupational Health teams.
  • Limiting care partner visits to exceptions only.

We will continue to provide updates as the situation changes.
