The Finnia village worker who tested positive for COVID-19 had little or no contact with residents of the facility, officials said on Sunday.

Public Health Sudbury and Districts tested the worker as part of the May 6 and 7 surveillance tests.

The employee works in the administrative service located in the Lepokoti building.

“The employee had no direct contact with residents and used universal masking precautions as instructed by the Department of Health while on the job,” said David Munch, general manager of Finlandia Village, in a statement. “The employee who tested positive is asymptomatic and is now isolated at home under the direction of public health.

“We are pleased to note that all residents of the Hoivakoti nursing home tested negative for COVID-19.”

Munch said Finlandia will keep residents and their families up to date. “We will continue to work to ensure that our residents receive the care they deserve … We ask everyone to remember to be kind, caring and supportive. It’s time to come together as a village. “

He said the facility will work with public health to “mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We commend our staff for their diligence in continuing to maintain our infection prevention and control procedures to ensure the health and well-being of all residents and employees. “
