Additional resident testing was completed today and 7 additional cases were discovered. That brings our total to 12 in-house cases of Covid. We are currently monitoring all residents and have protocols in place to prevent spread, including a separated wing and adequate PPE. Families, doctors, and county/state officials have been notified.
During resident testing, we have discovered (5) COVID positive residents. Those residents are on isolation precautions in their own private rooms and their conditions are being monitored closely. We have notified public and state health departments and will update the community when we have more information concerning this outbreak. Dining
and activities will be discontinued for a minimum of 14 days and in-person visitation will resume Monday the 27th at the earliest (depending on next two resident testing cycles).
We have had one positive staff member in the last cycle of testing. This does not prevent us from having visitors and we will reopen for in-person visitation later this week if all residents test negative. We plan on testing residents today.
