Tuesday, February 22nd COVID-19 Update

Dear Residents and Family Members,

We are pleased to report no new cases of COVID-19 among either our residents or our staff members. While we have been COVID-free for several weeks now, we must still maintain masking, social distancing, and negative COVID-19 tests 24 hours prior to visitation until the Department of Health permits us to do otherwise.

Rather than provide testing to visitors on site, we are distributing home tests for you to use at your convenience, which you will then bring with you to the facility to validate your negative test result for visitation purposes. Please let us know if you have any problems with self-testing and we will provide assistance.

Thursday, January 20th COVID-19 Update

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!
