Another positive sign in the battle against COVID – Shannex has announced it is closing the temporary isolation area set up to handle residents with COVID at its Parkland complex in Millidgeville. The unit was set up last month after an outbreak was declared when a number of residents and staff tested positive for the virus.
The company says all rooms and common areas used for the isolation setup will receive a professional deep cleaning. All employees working in the area will leave and begin their 14-day self-isolation period. Shannex expects the decommissioning process to be completed within days. Public Health will lift the “outbreak status” of the Tucker Hall wing 28-days after the last case has been identified.
A total of 20-confirmed cases have been reported at the complex – eleven residents – eight employees – and one non-Shannex employee.
