COVID-19 Update

Dear Residents and Family Members,

As you are aware, COVID cases are rampant in the community and unfortunately we have to report our first cases of the virus among our resident population. During routine testing, six residents (three sets of roommates) on one unit tested positive. All of the affected residents and family members have been informed. Employee testing has reveals several additional positives as well.

We have been testing residents every three days (more frequently as necessary) which enabled us to catch these new cases quickly. We will continue frequent testing going forward. Additionally, employee testing is now twice weekly. All units are undergoing additional sanitation and cycle cleaning. Staff have been in-serviced to ensure full understanding of new COVID-19 infection control protocols.

We have been fortunate to have been COVID free for the past ten months (to the day!). The medical world has come a long way in that time to provide best practices in dealing with COVID-19 and we can benefit from that knowledge to ensure we contain the virus as best as possible and provide the proper care to the residents who are affected.

Rest assured we are aggressively addressing this new phase of the pandemic for the staff and residents at San Simeon. I have full confidence in our team as we meet this challenge head on.
