Forty residents have been assessed by our medical team and have been deemed as resolved

Covid-19 cases.  As mentioned, previously, this determination is made on a time-based, asymptomatic process.  Twenty-two more residents are in the progress of being assessed as resolved Covid-19 cases, pending their physician’s assessment tomorrow, according to the prescribed timeline. Cumulatively, we have had 110 total residents test positive for Covid-19, 40 of those residents are resolved, and 20 residents’ resolutions are pending.

All residents continue to be monitored and assessed for Covid-19 signs or symptoms, with interventions as indicated or ordered.  Our residents will continue to remain in their rooms as part of our facility-wide infection control efforts along with specific isolation measures for residents who have tested positive for or awaiting test results for Covid-19.  All residents are tested weekly for Covid-19.

We continue to work closely with the Regional Response Healthcare Collaborative, as well as routine testing of our staff members.   Thirty-seven staff members have tested positive for Covid-19 in total.  Twenty-eight staff have returned to work.  We continue to test staff weekly, for Covid-19, and monitor staff for potential symptoms. 

As always, if circumstances warrant, the transfer of a resident to another unit, room, or healthcare facility, we will contact you immediately. 

Our facility continues to utilize N-95 respirators, face shields, gowns, gloves, and other Personal Protective Equipment for resident care and cleaning procedures.  We will continue to maintain adequate supplies of Personal Protective Equipment as part of our overall Infection Control practices. 

The facility wants to acknowledge our hard-working and dedicated staff members who strive, every day, to provide our residents with dedication and compassion, and who continue to provide that care without hesitation or wavering.  We are always grateful to them and for them.

39 Residents have been assessed by our Medical Team and have been deemed as Resolved COVID-19 cases.  This determination is made on a time-based, asymptomatic strategy.  We will continue to monitor all residents, but feel confident that these have recovered.

76 Total Residents have been diagnosed with COVID.  37 are still being treated as active cases.  More of these residents will be assessed next week, and will hopefully meet all state-required criteria for recovery.  We will continue to strive for the health of our residents and a return to normalcy for all those affected. 

27 Staff have tested COVID Positive.  23 of them remain asymptomatic.

We have entered Phase 3 of our COVID-19 Plan.  In the best interests of our residents’ safety and welfare, we are keeping all our residents in their current rooms.  We feel this effort to shelter in place is now necessary for the continuum of care for our residents while maintaining isolation precautions for all. 

We continue to work closely with the Regional Response Healthcare Collaborative in our efforts to best care for exposed and positive residents.

If circumstances warrant the transfer of a resident to another unit or room due to any illness, we will contact you immediately.

We will continue to test all residents and staff for COVID-19 weekly.  All staff and residents are continually monitored for potential symptoms.  Our facility continues to use N-95s, Face Shields, gowns, and gloves for all resident care and cleaning procedures.  We will continue to maintain adequate supplies to best protect our residents and staff.

We currently have 24 positive residents isolated to one wing.  We also have 3 positive staff who were identified through testing prior to work and did not provide care to any residents since the outbreak. We have 1 positive resident on another wing.  All residents on that wing are being tested. All families on that wing have been notified and we are waiting for results. Once we receive results, which are expected Monday at the latest, we will be doing facility-wide phone call update to all families. If you have not received a call from our staff, your loved one is currently in a Green Zone. Please check our website and Facebook page for postings as well. Our goal is to ensure accurate and real-time updates as often as possible. Due to the nature of this disease, daily postings may not be possible. We are committed to safeguarding our residents and staff. In response to many questions received, we can address the most frequent:

  • Whenever a resident presents with signs or symptoms of COVID-19, they are immediately put on Red Isolation which means all staff caring for them must wear a Face Shield, N95 Mask, Gown, and Gloves.
  • Roommates are considered potentially exposed and treated with the same precautions
  • Whenever the facility receives a positive test, the Red Isolation has already been in place for that room
  • All residents on that wing are then tested for COVID-19 and placed on Yellow Isolation.  The staff cares for them wearing the same PPE as above
  • All staff are wearing N95 Masks and Face Shields
