COVID-19 Update January 10 2021
January 10, 2021
To: Solheim Employees, Residents, Family Members and Stakeholders
From: Meg Pierce, Senior Director of Healthcare Services
We have one (1) resident in our Skilled Nursing Campus and two (2) residents in our Assisted Living Campus who have tested positive for COVID-19.
As we mentioned in our previous communication, and in an effort to further mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we continue with the following measures:
- All communal dining, group activities, and indoor visitation are canceled until all residents and staff test negative for two (2) sequential weeks of testing (i.e., 14 days).
- Residents are being served all meals on trays with disposables.
- Outdoor scheduled visits are limited to 30 minutes in length, and attendance shall be capped at a maximum of 3 individuals per visit. In addition, the latest that any such visits may be scheduled is between 3:30pm to 4:00pm (after which time Solheim will close to visitors).
- Only residents who are confirmed to be COVID-19 negative are able to schedule in-person outdoor visits or window visits. Residents with indeterminate COVID-19 status, or who are confirmed to be COVID-19 positive, are limited to FaceTime calls.
Once again, out of an abundance of caution, we continue to strongly encourage residents and their families and friends to consider making arrangements for FaceTime calls and/or window visits—rather than in-person outdoor visits—whenever possible until further notice. To schedule or check availability, email Kathy Rust at firstname.lastname@example.org. And as always, everyone who is physically present on Solheim’s campus at any time, for any reason, is required to maintain appropriate social distance measures and wear an appropriate facial mask.
If you have any specific questions, please direct them to Tina Antypas at email@example.com or call 323 257-7518 X225.
