COVID-19 Update

The health and wellbeing of our residents and staff continues to be our number one priority.

We recognize during this difficult time that communication is so important. This message provides a general overview of what is happening in Mill Creek Care Centre, in addition to the regular voice mail updates being provided to POAs.

Firstly, we wish to acknowledge how devastating the Covid-19 virus has been, in particular within in long term care homes and retirement communities. Our thoughts are with all individuals who have been touched by Covid-19.

We continue to monitor the situation closely. We are in regular communications with Public Health and are following all provincially mandated directives to ensure we mitigate any potential risks, some of which include:

  • Not allowing non-essential visitors
  • Enhanced infection protocols
  • Active screening of all residents and staff, at least twice daily
  • Universal masking

We strongly recommend you rely on reputable sources for information on Covid-19 such as Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), and Ontario Long Term Care Association (OLTCA) & Ontario Retirement Communities Association (ORCA):
