Just in time to allow for more Easter weekend visitors, two outbreaks have been declared over at Summerside’s Wedgewood Manor.

But the Community Hospital in O’Leary has a new COVID outbreak, and visits are being restricted.

“Health P.E.I. would like to thank staff for their dedication in managing the COVID-19 and RSV outbreaks within this home,” said a news release about Wedgewood Manor that was issued Friday morning.

Long-term care residents will once again be permitted to have six partners-in-care and three designated visitors each, with two permitted at a resident’s bedside at a time.

The 76-bed manor had declared a facility-wide outbreak of illness caused by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) on Feb. 24.
