After 91 days, the COVID-19 outbreak at Forest Height Long-Term Care was declared over on Tuesday morning, according to Waterloo Public Health.
The Kitchener nursing home saw 51 resident die from the novel coronavirus during the outbreak which was first declared on April 1.
A total of 178 residents and 73 staff members tested positive for the virus over the duration of the outbreak, which eventually forced the province to hand over management of the facility to St. Mary’s General Hospital.
The last remaining outbreak in the region is at Sunnyside Home in Kitchener which is currently going through its third outbreak.
