Fraser Health has declared COVID-19 outbreaks over at George Derby Centre, Czorny Alzheimer Centre, and MSA Manor.
George Derby Centre is a long term care facility owned and operated by George Derby Care Society. Czorny Alzheimer Centre is a long term care facility in Surrey owned and operated by Fraser Health. MSA Manor is a long term care facility in Abbotsford owned and operated by Maplewood Care Society. With the implementation of comprehensive strategies to prevent and respond to COVID-19 in care facilities, there are no longer any COVID-19 cases at these locations.
To support these sites, Fraser Health took a number of actions during their outbreaks. With the support of a rapid response team at each site, Fraser Health implemented enhanced control measures, such as:
- Allowing only essential visitors
- Restricting staff and resident movement in the facility
- Enhancing cleaning and infection control measures
- Communicating with patients, residents, staff and families to address questions and advise on next steps
- Providing twice a day screening of all staff and residents for COVID-19 symptoms.
Fraser Health has implemented comprehensive strategies to prevent and respond to COVID-19 in long term care, assisted living and independent living facilities. In addition, Fraser Health has also deployed more than 480 people including care staff and our rapid-response teams which include clinical nurse educators, infection prevention and control experts, screeners, and patient care quality officers supporting with communication to families and assessing symptoms at sites with outbreaks. Through these teams, sites are also connected with emergency supplies and additional personnel if needed.
