Cottonwoods Care Centre in Canada
Two staff members and 10 residents tested positive for COVID-19 this week at the Cottonwoods Care Centre, according to CBC TV. The publicly-funded retirement facility has 221 total beds. The report says 82% of residents were fully vaccinated as of February 15. Two-thirds of staff were fully vaccinated. Thus, the proverbial “two-week waiting period” for alleged immunity had passed. Eight of the confirmed cases were fully-vaccinated.
Dr. Carol Fenton of the B.C. Regional Health Authority blamed the outbreak on staff. “I don’t know the reason for the vaccination sitting at 65 per cent amongst staff,” she told Global News Canada. Many workers at the facility refuse to get the experimental shots after doing their due diligence. Dr. Fenton implied that the government may make the shots mandatory for all healthcare workers.
