Update from Administrator 9-8-2020
Dear Rolling Hills Residents and representatives,
I am happy to report that all residents tested last week were negative for COVID-19. We also had no additional staff positive.
We will continue to test all staff and residents weekly until we have no positive cases for 14 days per the CDC and CMS guidance. We are testing a portion of staff on 9/8 and the remainder of staff on 9/9. All residents will be tested again on Wednesday 9/9. Test results have been slow coming back due to a very high number of tests being conducted across Wisconsin.
All family visits will be on hold until testing shows that we have no further positive staff or residents. Window visits, phone calls and video visits will continue so please continue to stay in touch with your loved ones!
All residents are being monitored daily for signs and symptoms of illness. Residents are encouraged to wear masks when out of their room and will be remaining on their own units, use hand sanitizer and practice safe distancing from other residents. Beautician services are on hold since residents are not able to leave their units. We will resume services after we have another round testing, assuming all are negative.
We will continue to provide you with periodic updates with as much information as we can while still abiding by privacy laws. You will be informed if any additional cases are identified. Residents representatives will be contacted directly if your resident has a change in their health or is suspected of having an exposure to COVID-19. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns!
Thank you for your patience and support,
Linda Smith NHA
