B.C. government has for months been working to make this happen

Months after B.C.’s provincial health officer Bonnie Henry ordered all workers at seniors’ care homes and other healthcare sites work solely at one location, the order is finally being fully adhered to, according to Health Minister Adrian Dix.

The cost? About $10 million per month. 

Several dozen of these homes have had outbreaks so far. 

The six long-term care facilities with active outbreaks are:
•Abbotsford’s Tabor long-term care home;
•Langley’s Maple Hill long-term care home;
•Vancouver’s Holy Family Hospital;
•Port Coquitlam’s Nicola Lodge;
•Langley’s Langley Lodge; and
•Abbotsford’s Valhaven Home.
