On Tuesday, November 3rd, a COVID-19 outbreak was declared at Grandview Lodge Long-Term Care Facility, in conjunction with the Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit.

Three staff tested positive during routine testing and remain at home in self-isolation. The majority of test results have been returned showing 4 additional positive cases – one contracted service provider and three residents. The outbreak currently appears to be contained within one unit of the home. We are awaiting further test results and will provide updates to the community as necessary.

Residents are in room isolation where required. A public health management plan has been implemented and staff continue to be diligent. The home has been closed to visitors. Grandview Lodge will take all necessary steps to keep our residents and staff safe. Our thoughts go out to all of the affected individuals and their families.
