Windsor Regional Hospital has confirmed an outbreak of COVID-19 on its 7th floor medical unit at the Ouellette Campus.

The hospital says that to date, a total of 10 patients have tested positive for COVID-19 on the unit; eight of the 10 patients were symptomatic, while two patients were swabbed due to contact exposure but are asymptomatic.

Universal masking is required on the unit at this time and N95 respirators are required for clinicians when providing patient care or interacting with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 patients on the unit.

In order to reduce the likelihood of spread, and to protect our patients, staff and visitors, we are asking visitors to comply with masking requirements as well as further protective measures such as gowns where required.

The hospital says that they are monitoring the situation to determine if we need to make changes to our current corporate wide masking policy.
