Long-term care (LTC) facilities in Grey County will remain under modified recommendations in Stage 3, following an ask from the region’s medical officer of health (MOH).
“Today, we received additional updates related to Grey Bruce Public Health (GBHU) modified Step 3 recommendations to help contain the spread of COVID-19. The increase in the number of COVID-19 cases related to the delta variant in our area is very concerning,” stated Jennifer Cornell, director of long term care in Grey County.
Yesterday, Dr. Ian Arra, MOH for the GBHU, issued modified Stage 3 recommendations that "strongly recommended" gatherings in the region stay under 25 people outdoors and five people indoors as the region copes with having the highest COVID case incidence rate in the province.
In accordance with this ask, Cornell has confirmed Grey County’s three care communities – Grey Gables, Lee Manor and Rockwood Terrace – will be adhering to the request and will continue with the following:
“We appreciate your cooperation to help our community reduce the spread of infection. Our focus remains the health and wellbeing of our residents, families, team members and community,” Cornell added.
