While visitation at both facilities has now resumed, illnesses continue to circulate in many communities. Anyone who is feeling ill or has signs and symptoms of an illness is asked to refrain from visiting a health facility unless to seek medical attention. Please only visit if you are symptom free. As well, infection control measures should continue to be practiced in homes and businesses. Frequent and proper handwashing are very important to eliminate the spreading of illnesses as well as coughing/sneezing into a tissue, sleeve, or crook of your elbow, staying home when ill, and frequently cleaning commonly touched surfaces.

The Region would like to thank the general public for adhering to the visitation restrictions during the outbreak and to health region staff who worked diligently to rescind the outbreaks as quickly as possible.
