A $50m class-action lawsuit has been launched by the families of residents in a Long Term Care facility in Ontario. 

Out of the 137 beds available, there are 128 active COVID-19 cases, not including 84 active cases involving staff members. 53 residents and one member of staff have died also. 

The Ministry of Long-Term Care found that the “licensee has failed to ensure that the home was a safe and secure environment for its residents.” 

It certainly seems however that this is an exception, with the majority of providers we see, having done all they can to keep everyone safe through this very challenging period.
