COVID-19 Outbreak Declared Over at Sunnycrest Nursing Home

Lakeridge Health is pleased to advise that Durham Region Health Department declared the COVID-19 outbreak at Sunnycrest Nursing Home over on January 1, 2021.

Since assuming temporary management of Sunnycrest Nursing Home on December 3, 2020, Lakeridge Health quickly deployed an expert team to be on-site at Sunnycrest to help manage a serious COVID-19 outbreak.

Working in partnership with the Sunnycrest Nursing Home team, the Region of Durham Paramedic Services, Canadian Red Cross, Ontario Shores and Durham Region Public Health, Lakeridge Health has made significant strides to improve the quality of care residents are receiving and has restored evidence-based practices and operations that helped bring the COVID-19 outbreak under control and limit the spread of the virus.

Lakeridge Health will remain on-site for the duration of the 90-day Voluntary Management Contract to provide care for residents, support and training for staff, ensure adherence to proper infection prevention and control (IPAC) protocols, and keep families informed about their loved ones.
