A COVID-19 outbreak at the Valley Manor has resulted in many infections, and the Health Unit is asking for help.
The Renfrew County District Health Unit says that numerous staff and residents at the Barry’s Bay long-term care home have come down with the virus. The Health Unit is currently investigating three deaths at the Manor which are suspected to be associated with the outbreak.
The Unit says they are seeking support from residents in Renfrew County to volunteer their time to help staff at the Manor. Several health care partners, including Renfrew County Paramedics, St. Francis Memorial Hospital and the Ministry of Health are working to stop the spread of the virus.
Those who want to volunteer are asked to contact Stacey McDonald at 613-633-8112.
