COVID-19 : Measures taken by SNJM Sisters have produced good results

Return to news

Collaboration, constant communication, rapid response by putting confinement measures into place at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, all explain why Maison Jésus-Marie (MJM), a senior residence of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, remains COVID- free.

This is what we read in the recent article by Ali Dostie, reporter for the South Shore Courrier. This article describes the challenges the Longueil residence faces. The average age is 90 in this complex which includes an infirmary with full care and a pavilion for independent living. According to the public health authorities, the centre is considered a place of high risk.

After giving details of the prevention measures taken, the article describes the care the leaders have taken to foster a social-community life, even with so many restrictions. The present draft for the web is worth the read right now with the link below. A synthesized version will also be published in the paper edition of the newspaper distributed soon.

Despite these difficult times, the positive nature of the article provides the occasion to underline in a special way the great devotion and hard work of the personnel of Maison Jésus-Marie. The spirit of collaboration and mutual aid, along with a great respect for the preventive rules by everyone, Sisters and employees, resulted in the success rate we enjoy today. But, as the director of MJM has mentioned, “We must not let our guard down.”
