DLC COVID-19 Asymptomatic Testing Pilot Project
December 17, 2020
The health and safety of our personal care home residents, and the staff who care for them each and every day, is a top priority. Since the spring, we have implemented a number of precautions to protect your loved one.
Beginning December 21, 2020, our facility will be one of three Manitoba Sites participating in a pilot project that will examine the benefits of asymptomatic surveillance testing of staff working in Manitoba PCHs.
This pilot will use the Abbot Panbio COVID-19 rapid antigen test and will test staff that are showing no symptoms of COVID-19 and have no known exposure to the virus.
As a participating facility, we encourage all staff to take part in this important initiative. Participation is voluntary and staff will be tested once per week.
