How to do a rapid test before visiting your loved one at Menno Place
The Terrace East residents and staff are getting swabbed again today for the 2nd point-prevalence test. A point prevalence is a type of testing that provides information on the overall number of individuals affected in a health care facility. Conducting one or more rounds of testing when undetected transmission is suspected (or possible) helps to identify infected residents and staff before they get symptoms or if they never get symptoms. This makes it possible to manage people who are infected in order to limit further spread of COVID. Any resident or staff who tests positive is placed in isolation.
