March 21, 2022 – The Marathon Family Health Team and the North of Superior Healthcare Group (NOSH) are reporting that an outbreak has been declared at Peninsula Manor Seniors Supportive Housing.
A COVID-19 outbreak is declared in a congregate living setting when two confirmed positive cases are connected. This weekend, three Peninsula Manor tenants tested positive for the virus.
The individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 are currently in self-isolation. All other tenants are being asked to stay in their apartments to limit their contact with others and to reduce the risk of virus transmission.
To help contain any further spread of the virus, Peninsula Manor will be on lockdown until further notice (with the exception of ECPs entering through tenants outside doors). In adherence with provincial outbreak measures, NOSH will also be implementing outbreak management measures, including increased infection prevention and control practices and surveillance testing for affected individuals.
All tenants, along with NOSH staff who work in Peninsula Manor, will be closely monitored for symptoms and will undergo a surveillance swabbing protocol.
NOSH will be working closely with the Thunder Bay District Health Unit to manage the outbreak and to protect their patients and staff.
