Nine of 16 patients who contracted virus in hospital died

An outbreak of COVID-19 at Lions Gate Hospital has been declared officially over.

The outbreak, which has hit wards on both the sixth and seventh floors of the North Vancouver hospital, was declared over on Friday, May 22, a month after the virus was first detected in patients and staff.

Although Lions Gate Hospital is one of four designated COVID-19 sites in the Vancouver Coastal Health Region (others are St. Paul’s Hospital, Vancouver General Hospital and Richmond Hospital), the recent outbreaks on the sixth and seventh floors are not thought to be linked to the COVID-19 ward on the hospital’s second floor, said Lysyshyn.
