The Principality’s Retirement Homes Weather the Pandemic Well
There have been no deaths from Covid-19 nor cases even of infection among the elderly group in the three homes whose ages average well over 85. The three homes are A Quietudine (over 75 residents), Cap Fleuri (over 85 residents) and the Rainier-III Centre.
Ranging from strict to exceptionally strict preventive measures implemented early, some as early as last December, have protected them. The protective measures were made doubly strict from early March including:
– Restricting visits,
– Wearing masks,
– Confinement in rooms,
– Immediate testing at the first sign of symptoms.
Extremely dedicated staff are monitored with a temperature measurement twice a day. It is reported that there were solely three cases of infections in staff which were detected early and those staff immediately isolated to protect everyone.
