We continue to receive results of our on-going testing. We have two additional positive resident cases of COVID-19 in our Skilled Nursing Center. These resident’s family members have been notified, and these residents are isolated in our designated area. As of today, we have one active case in our Memory Care Neighborhood, and 5 active cases in our Skilled Nursing Center.
We have one direct care staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19 in our Skilled Nursing Center. We continue to monitor and follow guidelines set out by the Department of Health and the CDC.
As we move forward, we will have regular monthly testing for all staff and residents at a minimum. In addition, we will have more frequent testing in areas where we may have a positive case, or if we think there has been possible exposure.
We will continue to educate our staff and residents on good infection control practices, and require all staff to wear masks, as well as our residents when they are outside of their rooms and apartments. We are providing daily meals for all staff.
We will continue to update you as changes occur. If you have any questions, please direct them to Tina Antypas at email@example.com or call 323 257-7518 X225.
