A retirement home in Southern Alberta has decided to reimplement several COVID measures for residents, following the recommendation from the Alberta Health Service after a COVID-19 outbreak.

According to a memo to residents and families, three seniors at The Manor Village at Rocky Ridge, "guidelines" have been put in place to ensure the "safety and well-being of everyone in our community."

Though falling short of flat-out cancelling Mother's Day events, the retirement home has put in place several guidelines and say that they will reevaluate the situation come Friday.

Masks will be required for all who participate in any activities, singing activities will be cancelled, as well as bingo events, bridge events, and Catholic communion service for Thursday were also cancelled.

Exercise sessions would continue without masking, though social distancing will be required.

Staff will be required to wear masks and face shields, and additional cleaning and disinfecting protocols will be put in place.

The memo, signed off by executive director Carmela Dixon, states that an update will be given following the reassessment.

Rebel News has reached out to the The Manor Village at Rocky Ridge for a response and received the following statement:

The Manor Village of Rocky Ridge values the safety and wellbeing of all our Residents. In any outbreak such as COVID or influenza we implement safety procedures to reduce the risk of other residents catching it. Alberta Health Services issues guidelines in order to stop any infection as soon as possible. All of our Residents during any outbreak are still able to freely come and go from our communities, visit family and friends. Unfortunately, people still die from Influenza and Covid.
