COVID-19 Update – December 11, 2020

December 11, 2020

We are outbreak-free in all our buildings.

Holiday Season Activities:
This holiday season will most definitely be very different from previous years. All prevention activities including restrictions in resident/tenant movement and visits must continue throughout the holidays as we continue to be vigilant and undertake every effort to prevent the COVID-19 virus from entering our buildings.
What is Acceptable:
• Gifts that are new products delivered in a disposable bag with the resident name and suite/room number on the bag. Cards, potted plants and vases are acceptable.
• Food (non-perishable) from home in a disposable container with resident’s name on it.

Care Home Social Visits:
Please welcome Janet and Ilana the two Visitor Hosts who have started on Dec 8th. We are also pleased to announce In-person visits for designated visitors and glass door visits will now be accommodated 7 days per week during the hours of 10am and 5pm. Please contact westcourtvisits@kinvillage.org or 604-943-0155 x290 to schedule an appointment to visit your loved ones.

South Court – Assisted Living Visits:
From December 18, 2020, please contact the Nurse on duty 604-943-4805 ext 412 to book an in-person visit. Visits will be scheduled for 1-hour; however should the demand increase beyond our capabilities the visit time will be reduced to 30 minutes to accommodate more visits. Virtual visits are being scheduled as well.

Vaccines:
The much awaited news about the vaccines against COVID-19 is upon us. For the most current and up to date information on the vaccines please check out the BC Government’ site:
COVID-19 Vaccines. KinVillage will provide an update on the status of staff/resident vaccination schedule as soon as information is received from Fraser Health.

Thank you to Staff:

The Holiday Season is a time of year where families may be looking for ways to thank our remarkable staff. One suggestion is to visit KinVillage’s website under Donations and look up the COVID-19 fund which is one of KinVillage’s four Annual Program priorities. Your contribution made to the COVID-19 fund would be directed towards staff appreciation.

Have a great weekend and stay safe!
