Respiratory Outbreak Declared at Bethammi Nursing Home (3rd Floor)

Date: 2022-05-05

Respiratory Outbreak Declared at Bethammi Nursing Home (3rd Floor)

Officials at the Health Unit and Bethammi Nursing Home, located at 63 Carrie Street, have declared an outbreak of a respiratory illness (non-COVID-19) affecting the 3rd floor only.

The Health Unit is urging people to stay at home and refrain from visiting hospitals and long-term care facilities when feeling unwell to avoid spreading infections to those most vulnerable: young infants and children, the elderly and those with other chronic illnesses.

  • Keeping up-to-date with influenza and COVID-19 vaccinations.
  • Washing hands often, for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water, or by using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Covering coughs/sneezes with the upper sleeve if no tissue is available.
  • Staying at home when sick to avoid spreading infections to others.

For additional information, please see the TBDHU Website.
