Dear Residents and Families,
Testing between yesterday and today revealed a total of seven new cases of COVID among our residents. All but two of our previous COVID cases are still testing positive so the total cases in the building is nine. We also had one additional employee test positive, making the total of employees currently positive four.
The State has provided a limited number of “at home” tests we can provide to visitors to meet the 24 hours visitor testing requirement. Tests will be provided on a first-come basis between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm, Monday through Friday. You may only use these tests for the purpose of visiting a resident in the facility, at the time of visitation. You will have to take the test in the parking lot and then bring in the negative result in order to be cleared to visit. Please DO NOT enter the building if you receive a positive result on the test!
You may also continue to be tested by us on Tuesdays and Thursdays as previously arranged, or you may get tested at any other outside testing site. Remember results must be within the previous 24 hours of your visit.
If you have any difficulties meeting these requirements for visitation, please contact me or Kelly Moteiro, RN.
