Visitor restrictions are in place at Rainycrest Long Term Care Home in Fort Frances.

Riverside Health Care Facilities says it is due to a respiratory outbreak at the home.

Residents are permitted only two visitors or caregivers at one time.

Visits are also restricted to a resident’s room.

There are exceptions for palliative care visitation.

There are also restrictions on admissions, transfers, discharges, and large group social activities until further notice.

Riverside is urging all visitors to conduct a self-screening before entering.

Anyone experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, or other flu-like symptoms should not visit until the outbreak is declared over.
