VB Westminster-Canterbury again confirms it’s free of COVID-19


Nursing Homes Continue To Fight Against the Coronavirus

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — For the second time since the coronavirus pandemic hit Virginia, Westminster-Canterbury on Chesapeake Bay has confirmed none of its 1,100 residents and staff are positive for COVID-19.

Management made the announcement Monday.

The Virginia Department of Health offered to test all of the community’s residents and staff on June 2 and 3.

“Because Westminster-Canterbury is a large senior living campus of over 1100 residents and staff and has remained COVID-19 free, the VDH was extremely interested in performing this survey with our population. The campus’ experience runs contrary to the experience of other senior living communities of similar size,” according to a news release.

“While we are extremely thankful that our community is COVID-19 free, we will continue with the protocols that got us to this point, including social distancing and wearing masks,” said Westminster-Canterbury President and CEO J. Benjamin Unkle, Jr.
