COVID-19 UPDATE – July 31, 2020

This week, Premier Doug Ford announced the establishment of the Commission into COVID-19 and long-term care.

Three commissioners will investigate how COVID-19 spread within long-term care homes, how residents, staff, and families were impacted, and the adequacy of measures taken by the province and other parties to prevent, isolate and contain the virus. The Commission will also provide the government with guidance on how to better protect long-term care home residents and staff from any future outbreaks. The final report is expected by April 2021.

The Chair of the Commission is Frank Marrocco, an associate chief justice of Ontario’s Superior Court and once served as the provincial government’s lead counsel for the Walkerton tainted water inquiry. The other two commissioners are Dr. Jack Kitts, recently retired president and chief executive of The Ottawa Hospital, and Angela Coke, a former deputy minister who spent 27 years in Ontario’s civil service.

As an organization we are adjusting our protocols to return to a “normalized” operation. We thank our residents, families and staff for your understanding, cooperation and positive exchange of ideas. We are also focused on preparing for a potential second wave. Our action plan includes continuing to prioritize PPE and staff testing, enhancing our infection control protocols, enhancing our clinical practices, among other critical measures. 

We continue to be grateful to all those who pray and support us during these challenging times.

For all past updates, please visit our COVID-19 Updates page.

Our beautiful 16-acre northern campus in quiet Kleinburg, Ontario, is home to 160 of our community’s seniors. The living accommodations are comprised of six separate casas scattered over the expansive property, each housing up to 30 residents who share a living room, dining room, and bathing spa, to create a social and welcoming atmosphere. Our residents’ private rooms for retreating and visiting are also well-equipped and are of the highest-quality and comfort.

Upgrades such as heated floors, plasma TVs in resident’s rooms, our Piazza De Gasperis, or “town square,” a new reflective pool, bocce court, and chapel, make Villa Colombo Vaughan more than just a facility. It’s a home to 160 residents.
