We have all heard that Montreal is going orange and, no, it is not about our famous traffic cones.
But what does this mean for our residents, our employees and for you.

Following a ministerial request, we screened all residents of our CHSLD. Although this only represents a snapshot at the time we did the tests, they continue to confirm that we are on track because we have not detected any carriers of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).

Our procedure indicate a 14 days quarantine on arrivalfor any new resident, and this was done as soon as he arrived, we also did a test since it hasn’t been done by the MUHC. We received a positive result the same day in the evening.

At this point we increased the isolation measures in place and created a hot zone with the adjacent rooms.

The fact that the resident was negative twice before, and had no symptoms, means he was probably a false positive.

We were all very surprised to see the name of C.H.S.L.D. Château Westmount appear in the list of the Quebec Ministry of Health (MSSS) indicating that we had had one (1) death related to COVID-19.

We can reassure you. THIS IS A MISTAKE ON THEIR PART.
