An outbreak of COVID-19 at long-term care home Millennium Trail Manor has been declared over effective Saturday, November 28, 2020.
A facility-wide COVID-19 outbreak had been in effect at the Niagara Falls home since September 29.
There are no active cases of the virus at Millennium Trail Manor and no new cases for more than 14 days.
“Bringing an end to the outbreak reflects the collective hard work, vigilance and commitment of everyone connected to Millennium Trail Manor, including families, residents, staff at the home and members of Niagara Health’s hospital response team,” said Lynn Guerriero, President of Niagara Health.
“At this time, Niagara Health’s temporary management of the home remains in effect,” she said. “We’re confident we’re putting the necessary plans, resources and practices in place to assist with returning the home to normal operations and creating a safe and healthy environment for residents and staff long into the future.”
The Ministry of Long-Term Care issued a Mandatory Management Order on October 27, appointing Niagara Health to temporarily manage the home for a period of 90 days in an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19 and safely end the outbreak.
A total of 32 positive cases of COVID-19 were confirmed at the home during the outbreak, including 16 residents and 16 staff. Sadly, three residents who tested positive for the virus died. Our sincere sympathies and condolences go out to their families and friends as they grieve the loss of their loved ones.
In-person visiting restrictions remain in place at Millennium Trail Manor. Niagara is currently designated in the Orange-Restrict level of Ontario’s COVID-19 response framework, which permits only essential caregivers at long-term care homes. Enhanced infection prevention and control protocols are also in place at the home.
