To date, 26 residents in Langley Lodge who became ill with COVID-19 have recovered.

“For the next week we will be developing a phased approach to ease some of the outbreak restrictions and gradually allow our residents more freedom outside of their rooms,” Hauptman shared on the Langley Lodge COVID update page. “This is an important step towards gradual completion of our outbreak status, and we are being guided by Public Health officials.”
