COVID-19 Family Letter

We had zero new resident or staff positives in last week’s round of mass testing on February 18. This week’s mass testing will be on 2/24/2021. If we again have zero new positive cases, we may be deemed “outbreak free” the end of this month by the health department and will move back to random weekly testing of 25% of staff. Our third vaccination clinic will be on 2/24/2021 for those residents or staff members that missed their opportunity to be vaccinated.

COVID-19 Virus Update

As outlined in our previous update, we completed our first round of mass testing on February 4th after learning we had a new positive employee.  As a result of this testing, we had 2 residents that tested positive and 2 new employees that tested positive.  We are still waiting on the test results for 6 residents.

COVID-19 News

Even though we have started the roll out of the vaccine process in our country, state and Community, COVID-19 is and will be an on-going concern throughout this year.  We were informed that one of our employees tested positive for the virus.  This employee had tested negative in previous random testing that we have been doing but was tested again after being exposed to a positive individual outside of work. The health department has asked us to start testing all residents and staff again, and if we have no further positives over the next two weeks, we will return to our outbreak free status.

Testing & Visitation Update

We did our latest round of mass testing on December 16, and we are happy to announce that all staff and all residents tested negative for the virus.
As a result, the health department has approved us, effective 12/21/2020, to begin: Visitation with certain restrictions; and Group activities and scenic drives – engaging in social distancing and wearing masks…

As I am sure many of you are aware, the country is experiencing another increase in reported COVID cases.  We have just learned that one of our residents and one of our staff members have recently tested positive for COVID.  Currently, the resident is receiving care outside of the facility, and the staff member is quarantining at home.

COVID-19 Virus Update

We wanted to let you know that we have now tested all staff and residents again on the 28th.  Staff and residents have tested negative for COVID. The Community will move forward by performing in-house testing of 25% of residents and staff on a weekly basis until the current surge in California has receded in our county.

We want to reiterate our thanks for all of your support and continued patience as we work through this crisis. We still have no residents that are showing signs or symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19, but we have recently learned that one of our employees has tested positive for the virus. This individual has not been in the building since June 23, and the employee was asymptomatic when last at work.
