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 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.

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!
