Residents, Families and Partners:
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.
Following our procedure, the positive employees are quarantining at home until a return to work date can be determined following local health department and CDC guidance.
The residents are currently isolated in the Community being cared for by care staff with heightened infection control procedures.
We have our next round of mass testing of residents and employees tomorrow (2/11/2021). We will immediately contact residents, responsible parties and primary care providers with the results and provide a general update to all soon after receiving the results.
Outside of communicating test results, we will continue to notify residents’ primary physicians and designated family members of any changes in their loved one’s condition, whether potentially related to COVID-19 or not.
Please reach out with questions, concerns, or requests for assistance.
Joanna Enriquez, Executive Director
