Pinecrest suspect outbreak lifted; Fenelon Court sees staff member test positive

By Lindsay Advocate

Fenelon Court Long Term Care Home saw an outbreak declared on June 11 after one symptomatic resident tested positive for COVID-19. This individual is being isolated and additional testing has confirmed that an asymptomatic staff member has tested positive for COVID-19.

A suspect outbreak declaration has been lifted, though, at Pinecrest Nursing Home in Bobcaygeon.

A “suspect outbreak” was declared June 11 at the facility after a staff person with atypical COVID-19 symptoms tested positive for the virus.

After additional tests were completed and the Health Unit conducted a thorough investigation, it was determined that the situation at Pinecrest Nursing Home does not meet the case definition for an outbreak.

As a result, the suspect outbreak declaration has been lifted.
