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 have all heard the May 5th announcement regarding visits by caregivers to seniors’ residences and C.H.S.L.D. as of May 11th, 2020.

 While we are aware of the importance of visiting significant people for our residents, we do not share the government’s view on the timeline.

In order to maintain an adequate and risk-free environment for our residents, we have separated the C.H.S.L.D. Château Westmount into different areas.
