Parkside Extendicare taking precautions after another COVID-19 outbreak was declared at the home

Another COVID-19 outbreak is happening at Parkside Extendicare in Regina.

A letter has been sent to residents families informing them of the situation.

Two positive tests have been acknowledged so far, one from a resident and the other a staff member.

As a result the care home will be brining back restrictions to try and curb the situation as quickly as possible.

With the restrictions being reinstated, in-person visits will only be allowed during end of life situations, and will be limited to one person at a time. All other visits will be back to virtual.

An increase in PPE is also happening, all staff will once again be required to wear N95 masks, air purifiers are also now present inside the building.

COVID-19 tests will also be administered to staff before every shift.

Last fall 42 residents died, and all but four tested positive for COVID-19 in one of the worst outbreaks in the country.


Thanks to the latest outbreak the SHA and care home said some residents may be moved for precautionary reasons.
