The outbreak at Delta View is one of over a dozen outbreaks in long-term care facilities in the province.

The Fraser Health Authority, on Friday, declared a COVID-19 outbreak at Good Samaritan Delta View Care Centre in East Ladner.

One resident and one staff member have tested positive, according to the FHA.

The resident and staff member are currently in self-isolation at their homes.

Operated by the Good Samaritan Society, the 296-bed long-term care facility is working Fraser Health on the implementation of enhanced control measures.

Fraser Health says it is also working with the site to identify anyone who may have been exposed and is taking steps to protect the health of staff, residents and families.

Staffing levels are being supported to maintain resident care, social visits are restricted in the affected areas and staff and residents movement in the affected areas of the facility has been modified to minimize exposure to others.

However, essential visits can continue.

Some of the other measures include cleaning and infection control measures being further enhanced and additional screening of all staff and residents.

Fraser Health at sites with outbreaks deploys care staff and a rapid-response teams which include clinical nurse educators, infection prevention and control experts, screeners, and patient care quality officers supporting with communication to families.

The Delta View facility had several outbreaks last year.

The most recent was declared in late November of 2020 and the FHA didn’t declared it over until this January.

During that outbreak, 13 residents died as a result of COVID-19.
