Bobcaygeon, Ont. nursing home has ‘turned the corner’ with deadly coronavirus outbreak

The administrator at the Bobcaygeon, Ont., nursing home that has endured more than two dozen deaths due to a coronavirus outbreak believes the worst may finally be over.

After more than two weeks straight of reporting on the deaths of 29 residents at Pinecrest Nursing Home, administrator Mary Carr on Friday reported no new deaths for the eighth day in a row.

The last death at the 65-bed facility was reported on April 9. Including a spouse of a resident, the outbreak declared on March 20 has claimed 30 lives.

“We continue to believe that we have turned a corner and that many of our residents who had previously been ill or tested positive for COVID are now doing much better,” said Carr.
