COVID-19 has reached Consort after the Acadia Foundation confirmed on Nov. 21 that two residents had tested positive for the virus.
The Foundation shared that ‘both residents are currently medically stable’ and that the Centre for Disease Control is working with lodge staff to ensure the safety of residents, staff and the rest of the community.
Symptoms arose on Nov. 18 and then were given their test results back on Nov. 20.
“Residents must remain in their rooms until we receive their test results. Asymptomatic staff can go on with their daily life,” stated a release from Acadia Foundation.
“We remain hopeful and we are very appreciative of all the help we got from Alberta Health Services and the village and our staff has been amazing,” added Sandy Kelts, Chief Administrative Officer for the Acadia Foundation.
Acadia Foundation looks after lodges in Consort, Oyen and Hanna.
No other cases have been identified at any other lodges they look after.
