After battling COVID-19 for a month, outbreak at Port Moody long-term care home declared over

An outbreak was declared at Eagle Ridge Manor in mid-January, just as vaccines were being rolled out in care homes across the region; but with strong measures in place, case count was kept to five
A COVID-19 outbreak has been declared over at Eagle Ridge Manor in Port Moody.

Fraser Health has declared the COVID-19 outbreak over at Eagle Ridge Manor, a long-term care facility in Port Moody that is owned and operated by Fraser Health.

The outbreak was declared Jan. 17 and resulted in five cases of COVID-19, two among residents and three among staff at the 65-bed facility. 

Sunday, Feb. 21, Fraser Health said there are no longer any cases at this location, thanks to the “implementation of comprehensive strategies to prevent and respond to COVID-19 in care facilities.”

With the outbreak at Eagle Ridge Manor declared over, a long-term care home in Port Coquitlam is now the only nursing home in the Tri-Cities still battling COVID-19.

Fraser Health declared an outbreak at Shaughnessy Care Centre, located at 2250 Wilson Ave., on Feb. 12, with two cases among residents, according to the Feb. 16 situation report provided by the BC Centre for Disease Control.

The number of new outbreaks at care homes in Fraser Health has been greatly reduced since the COVID-19 vaccination was provided to facilities in January.
