Following the recommendations of Public Health and the RHRA Norfolk Manor staff will be asked to voluntarily subject themselves to covid testing every 2 weeks commencing July 2 , 2020. For convenience the testing will be done in- house with the support of Public Health.

At this time visitors are not being asked to be tested.

OUTSIDE Health Practitioners Allowed Access

As of June 20th health care practioners are not being allowed in. Previously only doctors and essential care providers such as public health, RHRA representatives, ambulance or assessors with the palliative care team.

Now Physio therapists, occupational therapists, mental health support, wound care, rpn or rn care services etc. are being allowed in following stict screening protocols.

Limiting outside traffic seems prudent as we look to slowly open and keep our residents potential exposure to community to a minimum.
