DUNNVILLE—Grandview Lodge has declared a COVID-19 outbreak. As a result of protocols requiring regular testing of Grandview Lodge staff to ensure safety of residents, on Tuesday, November 3 three staff within the home were confirmed to have tested positive. The staff members are currently self-isolating. For the protection of the residents, and in accordance with Ministry of Health requirements, all visits within the home are suspended effective immediately.
At this time, Grandview Lodge will be working with Public Health to ensure the safety of all residents.
“As we have done since the beginning of the pandemic, staff are committed to taking whatever steps are necessary to contain the virus and protect our residents,” says Cathy Case, General Manager of Corporate & Social Services.
Necessary personal protective equipment is worn by Grandview staff at all times when interacting with residents. Grandview Lodge staff and residents have the full support of Haldimand County and our thoughts are with the three staff members as they recover, along with everyone in the community who is affected by this virus.
We will continue to work diligently with the public health department and Ministry of Health requirements to manage this outbreak. Further updates will be provided as necessary.
