An outbreak of COVID-19 on inpatient Unit 3A at our St. Catharines Site is over.
Our Infection Prevention and Control Team declared the outbreak over after 14 days of enhanced monitoring of patients and staff showed there had been no evidence of further transmission and no new additional COVID-19 cases on the unit.
The outbreak was declared after one of our healthcare workers tested positive for the virus.
“Thank you to our team for managing this outbreak and ensuring that all important infection prevention and control measures were implemented and consistently practiced,” says Derek McNally, Niagara Health’s Executive Vice President Clinical Services and Chief Nursing Executive.
“While this is some good news during this challenging time, we will continue to be vigilant and maintain best practices in infection control to keep our patients, staff and physicians safe and protected.”
