COVID -19 Cases Climb in Long-Term Care Homes

Various articles and news stories over the past few days are reporting that COVID-19 cases are climbing in long-term care homes. Based on data from provincial health ministries, the CBC  News estimates that as of the evening of October 13, there were active COVID-19 outbreaks in over 120 long-term care homes in Canada's hardest hit provinces (Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and British Columbia).  In addition to the long-term care facilities, there are close to 100 outbreaks in retirement homes in those provinces, primarily in Ontario and Quebec. Https://www.cbc.ca/radio/whitecoat/the-dose-covid-19-cases-climb-in-long-term-care-1.5761136 As quoted in an article in today's Toronto Star: Seniors advocates and medical professionals are warning we could be on the cusp of another, long-term care catastrophe as COVID-19 cases in Ontario homes hover around similar numbers seen in early April  - just two weeks before a massive spike of infections tore through hundreds of facilities. "I absolutely am very terrified and worried," said Dr. Amit Arya, a palliative care physician specializing in long-term care, who witnessed first-hand the devastation of the first wave in GTA (Greater Toronto Area) facilities.  "We have to really recognize that long-term care is not a parallel universe.  More spread of COVID-19 in the community increases the risk of an outbreak starting in long-term care facilities."

Prior to the start of the Coronavirus situation in the United States, we had been in discussions with a company based in Florida and Chicago for a proof of concept program for proximity commercial messaging in Chicago.  Unfortunately, with the measures taken in Chicago at the end of March, the program was delayed. We are pleased to advise that the program is now going ahead and has been expanded to include our Safety Alert Messaging solution ("SAM") as well. Training sessions have been held and hardware units are being installed so that presentations can be made to various advertisers and companies.
