We have had two residents and one team member test positive for COVID-19. Per our procedures, any resident testing positive, or exhibiting any signs or symptoms is immediately isolated to prevent any potential spread to other residents. We are currently testing any additional residents that may have been affected and continue to test any residents immediately after they show any signs or symptoms of COVID-19.
Personal Care and Memory Support
We remain thankful that no residents or team members have tested positive for COVID-19 in recent weeks.
While there have been occasional RL residents who have tested positive for COVID-19 over the past few weeks, there have been no significant outbreaks. No residents have tested positive over the past week. Residents are able to see Joe Greer or Deb Hoffman for a COVID-19 test Monday – Friday and are encouraged to follow all CDC guidelines for isolation and masking requirements.
Out of an abundance of caution, we are requiring all team members working on the Skilled Nursing units to be tested weekly over the next two weeks, regardless of vaccination status. The length of weekly testing will be determined by whether or not additional COVID-19 cases are detected during testing. Below are the different testing options available.
- You may test yourself anytime at the Long Building Reception Desk (team members only)
- Stop by the Skilled Nursing Admin Hallway between 8AM and 4PM Monday – Friday
- Hudson Taylor Dining Room Wednesdays and Fridays from 2PM to 4PM
Please remember, masks must be worn AT ALL TIMES in all common areas in Long and Thompson buildings by team members. This includes on the units, at the reception desks, Sunnyside Café, etc. Masks may only be removed by team members when inside a break room, office, or closed space where no residents are present. Team Members are encouraged to be physically distanced when masks are removed.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me should you have any questions or concerns. We will continue to monitor active cases and make adjustments as we see fit to promote the safety of our residents.
