Visitation can start tomorrow for everyone besides Winx

October 9, 2020

We are over the moon to announce you can visit your loved one from tomorrow, following the directives below!  Yes, following our continued work and communication with Dr Wong and the team at Public Health Unit (PHU), today they provided us with clearance for all households including Northerly residents who are returning from Winx now that they have been cleared to have daily visitation from their loved ones!  We have one resident who will remain in Winx with one on one care until they return their second negative test and can be then cleared to relocate back to Northerly too.  They have already returned one negative test and today they were swabbed for their second test, so we hope if that test is negative, tomorrow they too will be cleared and can return to Northerly and have visitation from their loved one.  It truly feels like FriYAY today with this news!
