These are extraordinary times and CAMH is committed to transparency and communication with the community that we serve. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, CAMH will update the public when there are changes to report.
Today we are reporting a COVID-19 outbreak on Unit 4-5 at our Queen Street site. One new patient has a positive diagnosis. We are also reporting one resolved staff diagnosis associated with our outbreak on Unit 2-5 and three additional resolved staff diagnoses.
As of today, CAMH has two patients and seven staff members with positive COVID-19 diagnoses.
We remain vigilant about policies and procedures to keep staff and patients safe and we continue to work with our partners at Toronto Public Health on reporting, surveillance and infection control. Our staff monitors and follows the Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) recommendations from public health as they are updated, including about screening, testing and use of personal protective equipment.
We thank our staff and physicians for their continued work to care for our patients during these challenging times.
