Dear Concordia Place residents’ families and friends,

Concordia Place is at Pandemic Response Level Red – Critical as there is a COVID-19 outbreak at the site.

Outbreak protocols are in place at the facility to ensure the ongoing protection of residents and staff.

It may be helpful to note that personal care homes follow the Shared Health Infection Prevention and Control and Outbreak Management guidelines specific to long term care. Personal care homes are considered to be a setting with high risk vulnerable populations with an increased risk for more severe disease and higher mortality than the general public if infected with COVID-19. The following “Frequently Asked Questions” document provides information regarding the variation between Public Health orders and Guidance for Personal Care Homes that pertains to Concordia Place residents, families and loved ones.

To help stop the spread of COVID-19, the following measures are in place:

  • Designated family caregiver visitor restrictions are in place for the affected area. Concordia Place will continue to evaluate restrictions according to the appropriate Pandemic Level Response and the status of the outbreak. Impacted family members have been notified. Managers may make exceptions for compassionate reasons. As visitor restrictions are reviewed and revised, information updates will be shared with family members.
  • Communal meals and recreations activities have been modified
  • Ongoing monitoring of resident care needs including monitoring for signs and symptoms associated with COVID-19 and additional symptomatic or asymptomatic testing as needed.
  • Admissions to the facility are suspended.
  • Hairdressing services are suspended until further notice.
  • Enhanced environmental cleaning and disinfection of high touch surfaces.
  • Ensuring proper use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including donning and doffing of PPE
  • Ensuring physical distancing on the units and in common areas.
  • Promoting proper hand hygiene practices.
  • Ensuring staff are screening on entry to the site before reporting for work and taking appropriate action is symptomatic.
  • Continuing to plan for third dose COVID-19 vaccine clinics to offer booster doses to residents and staff as they meet eligibility requirements.

For areas of the building open to visitors, please be mindful of the following reminders:

  • Visiting hours: daily 9:30am to 12:00pm AND 1:00pm to 5:00pm (includes weekends and holidays unless otherwise posted). Visiting hours are subject to change pending Public Health direction to the Long Term Care sector.
  • All personal care homes in Manitoba require designated family caregivers to show proof of full vaccination and their identification on each visit to the home.
  • Please coordinate with family members to reduce the chance of being denied entry if others are already visiting.  One (1) designated family caregiver may visit at a time unless both designated family caregivers are from the same household (as the 2 visitors of the same household don’t need to physical distance from each other).
  • The required use of personal protective equipment (facility medical mask and eye protection) and the need to maintain physical distancing remains unchanged. Please do not visit in the common areas on the units, if you need to speak to staff please use the call bell in the residents room and wait for assistance.
  • General visitors are restricted at present.
  • Social passes are on hold at present.
  • If you recently visited the facility and if you would like to obtain a rapid test or visit a test site, please refer to information Province of Manitoba | Find a Testing Location. Drive thru sites do not require an appointment to pick up a rapid test.
