February 17th Update:
Dear Families and Friends:
Please accept this email as an update regarding a declared GI Outbreak at Mount St. Mary Hospital. As of this afternoon, February 17th, the outbreak continues on the 4th and 5th Floors.
Visitors are restricted from visiting residents who live on the 4th and 5th Floors, without permission from the Nurse.
All residents from these eight Houses are not permitted to leave their House until further notice.
We anticipate these precautions to be in place for the next few days, and an update will be provided when there are changes to the declared outbreak.
We currently have few residents having symptoms, however, the Medical Health Officer is continuing the outbreak status as this virus is highly contagious.
Please continue to follow excellent hand washing techniques, and infection prevention measures including proper mask wearing.
Please do not come in to visit any residents at any time if you are feeling unwell or experiencing cold, flu or gastrointestinal like symptoms.
With thanks in advance for your support,
Sara John Fowler
