Update from the administrator 5-30-22
Dear Residents, Families and Representatives,
We received notification this weekend that a staff person tested positive for COVID during routine testing on Thursday, May 26th. We also have an assisted living resident who tested positive today. The staff person will be off work until the criteria for safe return to work is met. We will continue to conduct testing and monitoring for symptoms for residents and staff. We have infection prevention strategies such as masking, distancing and disinfection in place to try to limit the spread of the illness. The most recent strains of COVID-19 are highly contagious and are spreading quickly in Monroe County and the state of Wisconsin.
We will be offering a COVID Vaccine booster clinic with the Monroe County Health Department for residents and staff from 9-10 am on June 2nd. Anyone eligible for a first or second booster may receive one. If you haven’t returned the consent form and wish to receive it please contact the unit nurse or social worker. . Being up to date with COVID vaccinations helps prevent serious illness and can help reduce the chance of spreading it to others! Immunity decreases over time even if you are vaccinated or have had COVID (or both) and getting a booster helps refresh that immune response.
