We continue to test all of our staff on a weekly basis. Unfortunately, one staff member tested positive this past weekend. Proper infection control measures are in place and we are following our facility’s policies and procedures. In the meantime, we can only accommodate outside visits and end of life visits for the next 14 days if there are no further positives.
As the state’s positivity rate continues to climb, during the week of December 1-10, the state is directing nursing homes to test all residents for COVID 19. This will identify any resident that has COVID-19, without any symptoms. As always, we will alert you prior to the testing and if your loved one tests positive.
Thank you and I will keep you updated.
