The District of Muskoka advised that a staff member from the Pines Long-Term Care Home has tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday.

The staff member is symptomatic and self-isolating at home. Two additional staff members are in isolation as an added precaution. The District says they and the health unit are working closely to monitor and respond to the situation.

Proactive bi-weekly testing for all staff will be completed next week as scheduled to support early detection, and will continue until further notice from public health experts.

John Klinck, Chair of the District says  “They remained focused on protecting residents and staff at the Pines Long-Term Care Home from COVID-19.”
