No one had ever experienced this situation. For families who have come to hear from their loved ones staying at the Vilanova nursing home in Corbas (Rhône), the dialogue takes place through a window. It's been 12 days now caregivers live confined with their parents, To protect them. They would have almost lost track of time. 24 hours a day, staff are therefore locked in their place of work. The 14-day threshold will soon be reached. For the moment, no trace of the virus in the Ehpad.
Nobody comes in or out. The 108 residents and 27 staff remain indoors. Exchanges with the outside are done through a security airlock. A radical life change for the staff, but also for the residents, cut off from their loved ones. All of them volunteered. Containment was decided for 15 days, until March 31, then extended for a week until April 8. A unanimous decision. A bet won so far, even if everyone remains cautious and determined. Some suggest extending the experience beyond April 8.
