The units currently experiencing outbreaks include 7 North, 6 North, 5 North, 4 North, and 4 West at the hospital’s Met Campus. At the Ouellette campus, both 7 East and 7 West are dealing with outbreaks.

Presently, 39 patients have tested positive for COVID-19 on the outbreak units. The majority of patients are currently not experiencing any symptoms. The majority of transmission has been limited to individuals that have shared a room, according to hospital officials.

It is being recommended unvaccinated individuals do not visit units that are under outbreak. All visitors to the hospital must continue to comply with masking requirements.

Precautions remain in place at both campuses and on all units to identify potential outbreaks. All patients continue to be tested for COVID-19 on admission into hospital and again during their stay in hospital whether they are symptomatic or not.
