Communication with residents and families is underway.

The four residents and two staff members at the three sites are currently in self-isolation at their homes.

Enhanced control measures have been put in place at each site. Fraser Health is working with staff to identify anyone who may have been exposed.

Staffing levels will be maintained to provide resident care, FHA said, while visitors are restricted throughout the facility.

Staff and resident movement in the facility has been restricted, cleaning and infection control measures have been enhanced, residents, families and staff are being notified, and twice a day screening has been ordered for all staff and residents.
