DIDSBURY - There has been a confirmed COVID-19 outbreak at Bethany Didsbury continuing care facility, with positive cases identified among six employees, company spokesperson David Ghoris said Tuesday.

None of the residents at the facility have tested positive for the disease, he said.

Under the facility’s outbreak protocol and at the direction of Alberta Health Services, the employees with cases of COVID-19 are self-isolating at home and will not return to work until cleared by public health, he said.

A single workplace policy for all Bethany employees has also been put in place.
