COVID-19 Update – September 14, 2020

September 15, 2020

  • A COVID-19 outbreak was declared in South Court by Public Health on September 3rd.

  • KinVillage South Court is home to 68 assisted living residents as well as 11 independent living tenants.

  • To date, 3 individuals have tested positive for COVID-19 – one staff member who is isolating at home, and two residents. 

  • Sadly, one of these residents died yesterday.  This is heartbreaking news for our KinVillage community.  Our deepest condolences are with the resident’s family and friends; we share their sorrow though not the depth of their loss. 

  • As of this morning, there are no new COVID-19 positive cases in South Court.  We do however have a large volume of outstanding test results for residents and staff who were swabbed on the weekend.  These swabs were taken at the direction of Fraser Health as a precautionary measure after the two residents tested positive on Saturday.

  • The health and safety of our residents and staff remain our #1 priority.  We all know COVID-19 is a highly contagious disease that can be deadly.  We are grateful for the dedication and skills of our staff, augmented by additional expertise and significant resources from Fraser Health. 
  • All restrictive measures, including visits, remain in place at South Court.

  • Our other residences – West Court/Care Home, North Court and Vidal Court – are NOT affected by the outbreak in South Court.
