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