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.
As promised, we want to continue to provide you updates on Santa Maria Terrace. In our previous update, we indicated that we had our first employee test positive for the COVID-19 virus. We have learned that two more staff members and 3 residents tested positive for the virus.
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.
