COVID-19 Update September 13
9/13/21 COVID Update: Over the weekend, we received a result back that 1 staff member was positive for COVID. The employee was originally tested on 9/3/2021 and has been at home quarantine since. The employee is a part-time worker who is not a care giver and has limited contact with our residents. However, at this time all Visitation will be closed until we are able to determine if there are any additional cases. Our plan is to complete full outbreak testing for all residents and staff on Monday 9/13/21 and Monday 9/20/21. Appointments are required for all indoor visits and only compassionate care visits will be approved. Once we have established that no other residents and staff have been affected by completing two weeks of negative testing, we will reopen to our regular visitation policy. Masks are required for visitation for all residents and visitors regardless of vaccination status or visit location at this time. County Positivity Rate was at 6.51% this week. This means we in a SUBSTANTIAL transmission rate according to the Center for Disease Control. Please stay safe and healthy!
