COVID-19 Updates

Outbreak Notification

Update: Dec. 2, 2020 1500 hrs

Seven Oaks Hospital is continuing to address an outbreak of COVID-19 linked to 5U 4-7. To date, a total of 5 positive patient cases have been attributed to the outbreak. Sadly, we have been informed that one patient who had tested positive and had been transferred to another facility has subsequently died. On behalf of the staff and physicians at Seven Oaks Hospital, we extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of this patient and to all patients and families impacted by this outbreak.

Currently, 3 COVID-19 positive patients are being isolated and remain at Seven Oaks Hospital. Other patients who may have had a risk of contact have also been isolated. No staff cases have been identified as associated with this occurrence.

Outbreak protocols have been implemented at the hospital to ensure the ongoing protection of patients, staff and visitors. Anyone potentially exposed are being identified and directed to self-isolate and, if necessary, will be tested as we investigate the origins of the transmission.

To help stop the spread of COVID-19, the following measures have been implemented:

  • Suspension of new patient admissions to the unit.
  • Restriction of visits to the 5th floor units as per the Provincial Guidelines. We encourage families to continue virtual visits with their loved one.

These measures continue:

  • Enhanced environmental cleaning and disinfection of high touch surfaces.
  • Ensuring the proper use of Personal Protective Equipment, including donning and doffing of equipment.
  • Ensuring physical distancing on units and common areas.
  • Promoting proper hand hygiene practices.

Seven Oaks Hospital remains open. Clinics and procedures continue as usual.

We are doing all that we can to contain the transmission of COVID-19. Our efforts continue to keep patients, staff and our community safe.

Regular updates will be provided on this web page as the situation unfolds.
