COVID-19 Disclosures

September 18th, 2020

We are pleased to report that all client and staff COVID-19 test results, that came back this week, have been negative.

Thank you to everyone at Grand Manor for the commitment to excellence as we continue to work diligently at preventing the spread of COVID-19.

September 15th, 2020

We would like to inform everyone that we have one employee from Grand Manor in isolation due to testing positive for COVID-19.

Even though we believe it was community transmitted, we are completing asymptomatic swabbing for all clients and employees over the next few days to ensure the safety of everyone at Grand Manor. Although the risk is low, we are working closely with AHS and Public Health to investigate any potential outbreaks.

We will provide updates as test results become available.

We are pleased to share that the positive COVID-19 outbreak status at Balwin Villa has been lifted. One of the staff that previously tested positive has recovered and the second staff member is on their way to recovery. We swabbed close to 200 clients and staff and all results have come back negative. We would like to show our appreciation to the Balwin Villa team for preventing the spread of transmission and ensuring the clients and their co-workers safety.

Thank you to each of you as you have all reached out and helped during this especially challenging week.

The Excel Society has over 55 years of experience providing exceptional healthcare in the community to Albertans. We are saddened to learn that two of our staff members at Balwin Villa have been infected with COVID-19. Both individuals are doing well and are in isolation. We wish them both the very best as they work their way back to full health.

At this point, no additional staff or clients from Balwin Villa have tested positive for COVID. More than 176 swabs have been taken for clients and employees. More than 160 results have been returned and all are negative with the exception of the 2 individuals from our team. The remaining results are pending and we expect the results over the next number of days.

We will continue to provide updates as information becomes available.
