COVID-19 Media update: Woodingford Lodge-Woodstock re-opens to admissions and visits
Re-testing shows “false positive” for employee result on Aug 9
Statement from Mark Dager, Director, Woodingford Lodge
Woodingford Lodge-Woodstock has been informed by Southwestern Public Health that the COVID-19 test result from August 9 was a false positive, and that subsequent testing has confirmed the employee did not, and does not, have COVID-19. As a result, Woodingford Lodge-Woodstock is again open to admissions and visits.
We are relieved that there was no risk to our residents or other employees. We will always act with an abundance of caution to protect those in our care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We thank the community for its support.
Director, Woodingford Lodge
