An outbreak of COVID-19 on the Trillium Unit at the Greater Niagara General Site is now over.
Niagara Health 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 on May 1 as a result of a healthcare-associated case involving a healthcare worker on the unit.
“I would like to thank our dedicated teams for implementing and consistently practicing infection prevention and control measures, allowing us to safely resolve this outbreak,” says Derek McNally, Niagara Health’s Executive Vice President Clinical Services and Chief Nursing Executive.
“We continue to follow best practices in infection control, including meticulous hand hygiene, physical distancing and the appropriate use of personal protective equipment, to protect our patients and teams.”
