We have been made aware today that a second health care worker within our Personal Care Home Program at Riverview Health Centre has tested positive for COVID-19.   

At this time, no residents or other employees are exhibiting symptoms. If symptoms develop, we will test our residents for COVID-19. We continue to actively screen employees to see if testing is required.

We appreciate this is unsettling news for residents, families and staff of Riverview Health Centre. Please be assured that we have moved quickly to investigate this situation.The health of our patients, residents and employees remains our top priority.

To help stop the spread of the illness we will immediately be suspending visitation on ALL Personal Care Home units(CD, AB and 3W units), with the exception of end of life situations.

If you have questions specific to your loved one’s health condition, please contact the nursing staff on the unit.

If you recently visited the facility and have questions or concerns about your own health, please contact Health Links-Info Santé at 204-788-8200 or toll-free 1-888-315-9257.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,

RHC Senior Leadership Team
