COVID-19 Update May 24
5/24 COVID Update: The results from the second round of outbreak testing did not reveal any additional cases of COVID-19. We will resume visitation by appointment for all units except our “New Admission Quarantine Unit”. All new admissions who have not been fully vaccinated, are roomed on our East Wing until their quarantine period has passed and we can monitor for any possible COVID symptoms before these residents are exposed to other areas of the building. Residents who have been vaccinated do not need to quarantine as long as they are not displaying COVID symptoms. Group activities including dining room can now resume. Please contact the activities department to set up your appointment. This week’s county positivity rate continues on the downward trend at 5.3%. As we know some of the processes that we have to follow per regulation can be frustrating, 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.
