(Strathroy, ON) The Middlesex Hospital Alliance is very pleased to announce that the COVID-19 outbreak on the 1 South inpatient unit at Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital has been declared over by the Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU). This is excellent news, and now enables 1 South to once again be open to inpatient admissions.
The teamwork and collaboration experienced across both MHA sites and between many departments was outstanding during the outbreak. We are grateful to our staff, physicians and leaders for their support and dedication during this challenging time. We are appreciative of the MHA Infection Prevention and Control team for their expertise and close collaboration with the Middlesex-London Health Unit, which helped bring this outbreak to a close.
While the outbreak resolution is welcome, we continue to be diligent and adhere to infection prevention and control strategies to keep our patients safe. This includes active screening, hand hygiene, distancing and consistent use of personal protective equipment, particularly masks and eye protection.
