Waterloo Region – On November 21, Dr. Hsiu-Li Wang issued Section 22 and Section 29.2 Orders to Village Manor and St. Mary’s General Hospital. This action will allow St-Mary’s General Hospital to take over management of this home during its COVID-19 outbreak and ensure that all appropriate measures to manage the outbreak are implemented.

Currently, there are 19 residents and three staff who have tested positive, including three residents who are currently hospitalized, and no deaths. Immediately following issuance of the Orders, a team from St-Mary’s Hospital went on site to begin their work.

“From the very beginning of this outbreak, health system partners and their resources have ‘wrapped around’ this home to help it manage its COVID-19 outbreak,” said Region of Waterloo Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Hsiu-Li Wang. “However, it has become clear that we need stronger and quicker action, which is why this Order has been issued.

“I would like to acknowledge the hard work of all those at Village Manor, as well as St. Mary’s Hospital and many partners such as the Waterloo-Wellington LHIN Home and Community Care Team, Dr. Sharon Bal, Community Concepts and Meals on Wheels, for their very valued partnership in assisting the home at this important time,” continued Dr. Wang. “This is a truly collaborative effort.”

“We know that outbreaks like this are difficult to manage and have seen this in other care settings,” said Lee Fairclough, President of St. Mary’s General Hospital. “Coming together to support the residents and dedicated staff at Village Manor will help to hopefully reduce the impact of the virus on them and the community. Thank you to all that that have stepped forward rapidly this past week and weekend to support this.”
