THUNDER BAY – The Thunder Bay District Health Unit has provided an update on the extent of COVID-19 outbreaks at the Hogarth Riverview Manor long-term care home.

The Birch Grove resident home area is no longer considered to be in an outbreak, the health unit reported Friday evening. That means all restrictions on the wing will be removed.

Three other areas in the 544-bed home – 5N Marigold, Spruce Grove, and Daffodil (1N) – remain in outbreak, according to the health unit’s website. Those outbreaks were declared on Jan. 5, 6, and 12 respectively.

"Following further investigation, it was deemed that the Birch Grove Resident Home Area was not impacted by the outbreak that initially started in the Spruce Grove Resident Home Area," the health unit reported.

According to the health unit, active outbreaks also remain in place at Southbridge Pinewood’s Sandpiper unit, Southbridge Lakehead, the regional hospital’s 3A unit, the Thunder Bay District Jail, and Jasper Place, as well as the remaining areas of Hogarth Riverview Manor.
