The COVID-19 outbreak at the Worthington Pavilion rehabilitation unit in Abbotsford has been declared over.
Not all the news is good, though. One resident of Worthington’s long-term care facility, where an outbreak remains active, has died from COVID-19.
Fraser Health made the announcement Thursday. The rehabilitation unit saw 16 cases and three deaths, making the site the location of B.C.’s largest COVID-19 care home outbreak east of Langley. Worthington is a public facility operated by Fraser Health. The rehabilitation unit provides care for patients to enable them to return to their homes.
Fraser Health has said the rehabilitation unit outbreak isn’t believed to be linked to the long-term care outbreak, where seven cases have been detected and six remain active; the facilities are now staffed separately.
