Island Health has declared a COVID-19 outbreak at the Discovery Harbour long-term care home in Campbell River after three staff members tested positive for COVID-19. 

No residents were experiencing symptoms and the risk remains low, Island Health said. Communication with residents, families and staff is underway and the staff members are self-isolating at home.

Island Health said it is working with staff at the facility to identify anyone who may have been exposed.

Admissions and transfers are on hold while the outbreak is in effect and residents cannot move between neighbourhoods. Island Health said staffing levels will be maintained to provide resident care and social visitors will be restricted.

“During this time, Island Health will have additional presence at the site to take any further actions required, support the facility and answer questions from staff, residents and family members,” reads a news release from Island Health.
