As you know, this past Monday a team arrived at our facility to test all residents. Out of the one hundred fifty-eight residents tested, one test was rejected and nine were positive for COVID-19. All positive residents are contained on our quarantine unit, and two of the nine have since been discharged to hospital due to other issues, leaving seven positive cases housed on the unit. The Department of Health is in our facility today retesting all residents on the quarantine unit.
All families of positive residents have been notified via phone, therefore if you did not receive a call your family member is negative.
Also in this past week, one new staff member tested positive taking our total number of positive staff members to twelve. All of these employees are off the schedule and following DOH and CDC guidelines. The second mandatory testing of all staff members is scheduled for this coming Wednesday, July 15, 2020.
If you have specific questions about your resident, please call the facility and speak to the unit supervisor where your resident resides. You are receiving this message because you are listed as a primary contact for one or more of our residents.
