Prince Edward Home Closed to Visitors as a Precaution
Health and Social Services
“This is simply a precautionary measure,” Dr. Sweet notes. “There have been some residents and staff with influenza-like symptoms over the past four weeks; but five residents and three staff have become ill since yesterday with these symptoms, so the facility is closing to visitors.
There have been no deaths among residents who had flu-like symptoms in the Prince Edward Home over the last four weeks. Relatives who need to visit a resident are asked to call the Prince Edward Home before visiting.
