The employee is self-isolating at home, and Fraser Health has dispatched a rapid response team to Thornebridge to help stop spread of the virus.

The team is working to identify anyone who may have been exposed to COVID-19, and further restrictions have been put in place at the home. Visitors to the residence have been restricted, cleaning has been increased, and residents are being screened for symptoms twice a day.
