Dear Family and Friends of Tabor Home:
Tabor Home Outbreak Update
During the Tabor Home outbreak, 63 residents in total and 44 staff in total have had COVID-19. Sadly, there have been two deaths. Some who had tested positive have already made a full recovery.
The health and safety of our residents and our staff is our first priority and a responsibility we take very seriously. We continue to work with Fraser Health to ensure the following measures are in place to prevent further spread of COVID-19 at Tabor Home:
- ensuring that staff wear a procedure mask that covers their mouth and nose, eye protection and other personal protective equipment as recommended;
- ensuring twice-daily screening of tenants for any signs of illness
- enhancing our daily cleaning practices;
- maintenance of 2m of physical distance in dining rooms, staggered meal times, tray service or other strategies
- cancellation of group activities and client gatherings, while providing one-to-one activity as appropriate;
- visitor access restrictions and screening measures for essential visitors
- providing active staff screeners to support site to screen all staff twice a shift
- providing ongoing staff education by Fraser Health and facility-based staff
- priority access to necessary supplies such as masks, eye protection and gowns
- grouping of staff and residents to prevent cross over between well and sick individuals
If you have further questions, please contact myself, Dan Levitt, Executive Director, by phone at 604-859-8715 extension 102 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
As much as we would love to accommodate window visits, we had to make the difficult decision at the start of the outbreak to temporarily cease all visits, including window visits, until the outbreak is declared over. We understand and empathize with all of you during this time, but in an effort to contain this outbreak as fast as possible, we needed to implement quick and hard decisions.
This breaks our hearts, but we know this breaks yours and your loved ones hearts even more. Keep praying and believe with us for this outbreak to be over sooner than later.
Keeping Connected with Loved Ones
While visits are temporarily on hold, we strongly encourage you to send cards, letters, and/or photos through our website to your loved ones. We'll print and deliver them right away so your loved ones know they are in your thoughts and prayers.
We understand this is not the same as an in-person visit or video chat, but it keeps them connected to you and brings hope in the midst of a very challenging season.
