28 in isolation amid COVID-19 outbreak at The Salvation Army Centre of Hope in London, Ont.
COVID-19 outbreak was declared this week at The Salvation Army Centre of Hope in London, Ont.The centre’s executive director Jon DeActis told Global News the outbreak was declared on Wednesday by the Middlesex-London Health Unit after a number of clients at the shelter either tested positive for the virus or were identified as close contacts. Here’s a look at Ontario’s planned timeline to lift COVID-19 restrictions As of Thursday evening, 18 clients had been impacted by the outbreak, half of whom have tested positive while the other half were identified as close contacts, according to DeActis.“They’re all in isolation, we’re full, but we’re isolating every single person and we’re using our chapel to isolate as well,” DeActis said.“The problem is the isolation beds were full, so we can’t get them moved from our place into the isolation beds, which are in the hotels, so once those beds become available we’re moving our clients into those.”Another 10 staff members are isolating at home, three of whom have tested positive while the rest are close contacts.Since the Centre of Hope is a congregate setting, staff are required to isolate for 10 days rather than five.DeActis says the Centre of Hope is in contact every day with the MLHU as the outbreak continues, adding that the centre has been given increased access to PCR testing as well.
