WATERLOO -- A COVID-19 outbreak at a retirement home in St. Jacobs appealing the loss of its licence to operate is now over.
The Region of Waterloo Public Health listed one resident of Village Manor with the virus on May 22, but removed the home from their active list on June 6.
The Retirement Home Regulatory Authority revoked the facility’s licence earlier this year, as public inspection reported listed a number of alleged infractions over the past three years.
Village Manor’s owner-operators are disputing the claim and are appealing the loss of the licence.
The appeal tribunal is set for Oct. 9.
The Village Manor did not return a call and request for comment from CTV Kitchener.
