“Despite this good news, we continue to do weekly testing in our home to monitor any potential spread and we remain vigilant in all ongoing infection prevention and control measures for the continued health and safety of all residents and staff.”

Fairfield Park officials added: “The community has been so supportive of us during this time and, although we could never adequately express our gratitude for the kindness shown to our residents and staff, we wanted to find a way to say thank you. We could not have done any of this without our friends and neighbours and so our staff have put together a video. From our home to yours… thank you.”
