These are extraordinary times and CAMH is committed to transparency and communication with the community that we serve. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, CAMH will update the public when there are changes to report.
Today we are reporting one resolved patient diagnosis from our outbreak on Unit 1-4. We are also reporting two staff resolved diagnoses related to our outbreak on Unit 2-3 and one related to our outbreak on GPUA/ACU. As of today, CAMH has two patients and six staff members with positive COVID-19 diagnoses.
We are also pleased to announce that the COVID-19 outbreak on Unit 1-5 at the Queen Street site has been declared over by Toronto Public Health and CAMH Infection Prevention and Control.
We remain vigilant about policies and procedures to keep staff and patients safe and we continue to work with our partners at Toronto Public Health on reporting, surveillance and infection control. Our staff monitors and follows the Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) recommendations from public health as they are updated, including about screening, testing and use of personal protective equipment.
We thank our staff and physicians for their continued work to care for our patients during these challenging times.
