Under the guidance of Medical Health Officer Dr. David Torr, the respiratory outbreak at the Swift Current Care Centre has been declared ‘rescinded’ as of this morning.  

Regular visitation to the facility can resume to normal.  The Care Centre staff and health region wishes to extend its thanks to the families and other visitors for their patience and understanding during the outbreak timeline … appreciating that is inconvenient to have the visitation restricted, it was essential to help curb the illness from spreading any further.  All visitors are encouraged to practice good hand hygiene when entering and leaving the facility, and take advantage of the hand sanitizer stations available.  If you are feeling ill, please delay your visit to the facility until your signs and symptoms have disappeared.
The facility’s staff will continue their enhanced infection control and cleaning procedures for the near future to ensure that the virus is under control.
