The Finlandia Village worker who tested positive for COVID-19 had little or no contact with residents at the facility, officials said Sunday. Public Health Sudbury and Districts tested the worker as part of surveillance testing conducted on May 6 and 7. The employee works in the administration department located in the Lepokoti Apartment building. “The employee has had no direct contact with residents and has utilized universal masking precautions as per Ministry (of Health) directions while at work,” David Munch, chief executive officer of Finlandia Village, said in a release. “The employee who tested positive is asymptomatic and is now self-isolating at home under the direction of public health. “We are pleased to note all residents in the Hoivakoti Nursing Home tested negative for COVID-19.” Munch said Finlandia will keep residents and their families up to date. “We will continue to work to ensure that our residents will be provided with the care they deserve … We ask everyone to remember to be kind, caring and supportive. This is a time to come together as a Village.” He said the facility will work with Public Health to “mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We commend our staff for their diligence in continuing to uphold our infection prevention and control procedures to ensure the health and well-being of all residents and employees.”
