Re: Use an Abundance of Caution on Campus — Fraser Health Home Support Worker Tests Positive for COVID-19
Date: Friday, August 21, 2020 6:30pm

On Friday, August 21st, 2020 Menno Place was notified that a Fraser Health Home Support Worker tested positive for COVID-19.

The individual has worked in both Primrose Gardens and Terrace West Independent Living Apartments within the last two weeks. Public Health has NOT declared a COVID-19 outbreak at Menno Place.

There is no cause for alarm at this time. We are informing you out of an abundance of caution. NO Menno Place staff or residents have tested positive for COVID-19 at this time. 

Over the weekend, we encourage residents of Primrose Gardens and Terrace West to stay in their suites as much as possible, to wear masks whenever they are in indoor or outdoor public spaces, and to continue to wash or sanitize their hands regularly.

Meals will go back to being served in the apartment suites, and all hair appointments will be cancelled.

We ask that Registered Visitors of Primrose Gardens and Terrace West refrain from visiting or making deliveries to the campus this weekend unless absolutely necessary. Security will be on the premises to remind visitors.

We hope to have an update for you on Monday, August 24 or if Public Health advises us differently. Let’s continue to do as Dr. Henry asks and be kind, be calm, and be safe.

Karen Biggs
CEO, Menno Place
