6 deaths due to respiratory infection at home nursing Halifax

Public health officials have linked six deaths at a Halifax nursing home to an ongoing outbreak of respiratory illness.
Katherine VanBuskirk, a spokesperson with Shannex Inc., which runs the nursing home, confirmed in an email the outbreak is ongoing.
The Nova Scotia Health Authority said it was notified April 4 about a likely outbreak of Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) on one floor at Arborstone Enhanced Care in Armdale, and it spread to a second floor a week later.
Arnason said facilities are required to inform the authority of any respiratory illness outbreak, and it’s the authority’s job to help them implement control measures.
The nursing home is not taking any new admissions or transfers and has restrictions on many activities.
