The East Wing has precautions in place as well as an air purifying machine.   Group activities including dining room remain on hold at this time, but we will be able to resume these activities on Friday if we receive all negative results back from today’s testing .  Visitation by appointment continues at this time for residents residing on Annex 1 and Annex 2, please contact the activities department to set up your appointment.  This week’s county positivity rate continues on the downward trend at 6.1%.  We appreciate your patience while we follow these processes put into place by the CDC and Department of Health as well as what you are doing in the community to keep the spread down.  It truly takes everyone’s help to assure our residents and staffs safety as well as to continue the activities such as visitation that everyone needs.  Please contact Patty Weaver, our Infection Control Specialist or Vickie Kilmer, Nursing Home Administrator if you have additional questions at (717) 334-6249.
