The Child Protection and Family Services Agency (CPFSA) is reporting that 12 caregivers at the Maxfield Park Children’s Home have tested positive for COVID-19.
The CPFSA says the positive caregivers were asymptomatic and have since been sent home to self-isolate.
The home currently has 92 children and 80 caregivers.
The agency says no child has tested positive.
It says 74 caregivers and 92 children were tested during visits to the facility by the public health team of the Ministry of Health and Wellness between December 13 and 30, 2020.
Arrangements have been made for the remaining caregivers to be tested, the CPFSA said.
