COVID-19 Virus Update

August 1, 2020

Dear Residents and Family Members:

As you know from our previous communications, we have tested all staff and residents and we provided the results in our July 10 communication.  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. Our Community will notify SBCHD, CCL, residents’ primary physicians, designated family members, and residents regarding any positive findings for residents resulting from this testing. Read more

COVID-19 Virus Update

July 3, 2020

Dear Residents and Family Members:

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.  As part of the local health department guidance, after having a positive finding for an employee or resident in a senior living community, the Community was required to test all residents and staff.  These tests occurred on June 29th, and on that date, no one had reported or were observed displaying any signs or symptoms of COVID.

We received the results of those test late yesterday.  We have learned that two more staff members and 3 residents tested positive for the virus. Read more

Information Regarding Visitation

Dear Residents, Family and Friends:

On March 14, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advised of a nationwide restriction on visitation for certain health facilities, due to the coronavirus. Though these restrictions were drafted for skilled nursing facilities, they address risks similar to those posed to other senior living communities. CMS has directed that only health care workers or end-of life visitors be allowed to visit the community during this time. Until further notice, we will follow this direction, and will not permit non-essential visitors. We continue to encourage virtual visitation by phone, FaceTime, Skype, etc. It is important for you to remain connected with your loved one, and we will be happy to work with you to accomplish this in the absence of an in-person visit.
