Update from the Administrator 4-23-2021
Dear Residents, Families and Representatives,
We have continued to test residents and staff following our positive staff cases (2) from last week. All residents have been tested this week and remain negative for COVID. We have not had any additional staff cases since 04/15/2021. We will be testing all residents again next week and staff twice weekly until we have 14 days with no additional positive cases.
I feel that we can safely open for visits that occur off of the living units, preferably on the outside patios if weather permits. We strongly encourage scheduling your visit in advance to ensure that visiting areas are available, staff are available to screen visitors and assist the resident to the visiting area in a timely manner. It also allows us to inform you in advance if there are restrictions or changes in our safety protocols.
Please be sure to follow all health measures during the visit including wearing a mask at all times and hand sanitizing. Residents and visitors who are both fully vaccinated can be within 6 feet of each other but masks are required. We are limiting the number of visitors for each resident to two except if approved in advance for more. The reason is to keep the overall number of visitors to a safe level.
Thank you for your patience, understanding and support.
Please reach out with any questions or concerns!
Linda Smith NHA
