I want to share with you that we have one COVID-19 positive team member. This case was first identified by rapid test at Seasons Camrose and further confirmed by PCR lab result. As a result, Communicable Disease Control (CDC) has declared Seasons Camrose in outbreak status in Portsmouth Cottage only.
While having no symptomatic staff or residents at this time, we will be isolating all residents in Portsmouth Cottage until we identify close contact. Alberta Health Services (AHS) has advised that all residents and staff in Portsmouth will receive prevalence testing today, May 25 and May 31. If we have no other positive cases, we should be out of the outbreak in 14 days.
The health and safety of our staff and residents remain our greatest priority. We are working closely with AHS and CDC to manage this situation and will be transparent with staff, residents and families as this situation progresses.
Thank you for the trust you have placed in Seasons Retirement Communities. We will continue to make decisions with our staff and residents’ health and safety in mind.
Chief Operating Officer,
Seasons Retirement Communities
