Dear Residents and Families of Kiwanis Care Centre,

We are notifying you that the “Enhanced Monitoring” of COVID-19 that was declared by Public Health on January 4, 2021 at Kiwanis Care Centre will be declared over by Fraser Health Population and Public Health, as of Saturday, January 16, 2021.

Facility staff will continue to screen residents and fellow staff for symptoms twice per day and to apply standard infection prevention measures to help protect residents and staff.

Residents will be able to resume visits with one designated family member or friend starting Monday, January 18, 2021 as per facility safety plan, in the Chapel.  Please follow the previous booking procedures to make your visiting arrangements.

On Thursday, January 14, 2021 all residents who had consents for the COVID vaccine received it!  This is very exciting and hopefully the beginning of a return to some sort of normal!  Our staff vaccines have also been completed.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their patience and support during the past two weeks, it has been challenging but very successful!

If you have further questions, please contact Lorrie Gerrard (Executive Director) or Pierre Florendo (Director of Care) at 604-525-6471 or at our e-mail addresses:
