COVID-19 outbreak on RVH’s Cardiac Renal unit

Visitor restrictions are in place

Three patients with a link to the Cardiac Renal unit at Barrie’s Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre have tested positive for COVID-19.

All patients on the unit have been swabbed and all tests came back negative. The patients will be tested again later this week.

The hospital says patients who have been previously discharged from the unit will be contacted by public health and advised to self-isolate in their homes.

Staff who recently provided care on the unit are being tested.
