Letter to Patients, Residents and Families
September 14, 2020
Dear Family members of Patients and Residents,
We have become aware of a health-care worker at Deer Lodge Centre on the Lodge 6 unit who has tested positive for COVID-19.
Please be assured that we have moved quickly with the guidance of Public Health to investigate and based on the findings we do not believe there is a risk of transmission at the facility. In an abundance of caution, we have nonetheless further enhanced safety and infection prevention protocols to ensure we are taking every step to prevent any possible transmission.
Any patients from Lodge 6 exhibiting respiratory symptoms will be tested for the cause of their illness, including for COVID-19. If your family member is being tested, you will be contacted directly.
We appreciate your concern for your loved one. Our top priority is the care of our residents and patients. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Tannis Pratt at firstname.lastname@example.org or 204-831-2963.
Kevin A. Scott
Chief Operating Officer
