Further to information shared earlier today, we have received the results for 39 residents at Maculata Place and all have returned negative results for COVID-19.
This is in addition to the 19 residents of Bertram House who also returned negative results on the weekend.
There is one resident with a positive result as reported on Saturday. This resident remains in isolation at Maculata Place and is being cared for on a one on one basis.
We are expecting the remaining results for Maculata Place residents tomorrow – there is nothing sinister in the flow of results, it is simply the process which is out of our control.
Families and residents have been informed of the negative results to date.
There will be a second phase of tests for all Maculata Place residents on Thursday August 13 and all will remain isolated until results of this second test are returned.
All residents remain in isolation in their rooms, and staff are following infection control protocols and the Emergency Management Plan, supported by GV Health and the COVID case management team.
