SHN Interim Report on Guildwood

To our Extendicare Guildwood Community,

Here is the interim report prepared by the Scarborough Health Network on the COVID-19 outbreak at Extendicare Guildwood.

We want to extend our thanks to the Scarborough Health Network for their support and assistance in managing this outbreak. The impact of this virus on our community, especially on residents and families, has been exceptionally hard. Our hearts continue to be with the families of residents who passed away during the COVID-19 outbreak, though we know our condolences bring little comfort in such a deeply difficult time.

We are grateful to the Scarborough Health Network during this challenging time, and together we are making good progress on implementing the recommendations outlined in the interim report. While we are all relieved that Extendicare Guildwood is out of outbreak, please know that we remain vigilant. We are testing all staff for COVID-19 on a weekly basis and we will continue to work closely with the Scarborough Health Network, Public Health and our own teams inside Extendicare Guildwood to help keep our residents safe.
