Dear Long Term Care Facility Managers and Directors of Care,

You may have heard that an exposure to COVID-19 occurred at the Lynn Valley Care Centre Lodge. In an abundance of caution we have instituted outbreak control measures at the Lynn Valley Care Center Lodge. Please note that the Lynn Valley Care Center Manor is not affected.

We know that many staff work at multiple long term care facilities. As part of outbreak control
measures, we are asking that affected staff refrain from working in other health care settings until March 15th, 2020. This applies to all staff who worked in the Lynn Valley Care Center Lodge between February 29 and March 6 .

Yours sincerely,
Communicable Disease Control
