As of January 29th, 2021 the COVID-19 outbreak at Ivan Franko Home (LTC) has been declared OVER. All staff and resident cases have been resolved. Thank you all for your support during this outbreak!
We are committed to continuing to do everything possible to protect the health and safety of our residents, and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine was given to all eligible residents, caregivers and staff on January 7, 2021 by The Unity Health Team. We are thrilled to have been the first LTC home they worked with! The 2nd dose was given February 4th, 2021.
We continue to follow Directives, Guidelines and recommendations issued by the Government of Ontario and Public Health authorities, and revise our policies and procedures as government guidance is amended.
Please see our most recent visiting policy below.
As community spread of COVID-19 is very high, we ask all private caregivers to be very vigilant when coming to our Home and adhere to our IPAC policies and procedures.
Thank you very much for your continued support and cooperation. Stay healthy and safe!
