Tabor Village is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our residents, tenants and employees, as well as their families and friends. We have developed a comprehensive response plan in accordance with Fraser Health.
Since April 25th, we have had a total of six positive cases of COVID-19 at Valhaven Home. We are deeply saddened by the loss of one resident to this pandemic. One resident and two staff have fully recovered. As of May 23rd, we currently have one resident and one staff member battling the virus. We do not have any confirmed cases in any of our other residences. For more information on the situation and our response, please click HERE.
*Donations to the Tabor Village COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund will go towards supporting increased safety measures, resident wellness and recreation programs, additional equipment needs, and staff encouragement programs.

DELIVERIES & CARE PACKAGES:
All staff has undergone extra education regarding proper hand washing. We have posted signage encouraging proper handwashing in every washroom, sink station and lunch rooms. We also have hand sanitizer available at every entrance, exit, and throughout the residences. We are following a two-step cleaning / disinfecting procedure in accordance with PHAC recommendations on all high-touch surfaces such as hand rails, door handles, light switches, desks, phones, counters, food prep areas, washrooms, elevators, chairs, tables, etc.
Step 1 - General Purpose Cleaner with Hydrogen Peroxide.
Step 2 - Concentrated General Virucide Disinfectant Cleaner.
Staff are working very hard to take every measure available to protect your loved ones. We greatly appreciate the teamwork and dedication we are seeing from all of our staff during this challenging time.
We know this is the most difficult restriction for both residents, tenants, and families but it is also the most important. There are no visitors allowed at any Tabor Village residence until further notice, in accordance with Fraser Health and the BC Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry.
What would happen in an outbreak?
The outbreak protocol for COVID-19 is very similar to current protocols for influenza.
Enhanced cleaning and screening procedures would continue as already implemented.
Primary contacts would be informed immediately.
Fraser Health and the Provincial Medical Health Officer would provide direction for outbreak procedures.
Seniors with COVID-19 would be cared for and fed in their rooms by trained staff.
As always, significant health status changes would be communicated to residents’ and tenants’ primary contacts as soon as possible.
