    Influenza outbreaks at long-term care facilities

    Local long-term care facilities are experiencing influenza outbreaks.
    ?What?s made it a little difficult for us is it?s not just influenza circulating in some of these long-term care facilities and also in the community. There?s a number of organisms,? said Dr. Mark Vooght, chief medical officer for Five Hills Health Region (FHHR).
    ?The most common at the moment (is) influenza A which we?d expect at this time of the year ... Later in the season, probably towards the end of January (or) February, it may transition into being influenza B predominant, but it?s too early to say right now.?
    He said the Edgar Hall wing of Providence Place is experiencing an outbreak of influenza A and coronavirus OC43. The outbreak began on Dec. 28. Vooght said that specific wing is shut down.
    The Raphael Wing of Providence Place had a respiratory outbreak and so did the Extendicare special needs unit, which is also shut down. Both of those outbreaks began on Jan. 2.
