Skilled Nursing now has a total of 25 residents with active COVID-19 in the facility. The vast majority of those have been isolated and contained to one area. By the end of this week, more than half of those individuals will be classified as “recovered” and will no longer be considered active. We have had five total team members test positive for COVID-19 since Friday, 3 of those working in direct care. We are continuing to limit interaction between residents until we are confident we have contained any additional spread and are confident we can safely resume group activities and communal dining.
While visiting remains open per CMS and DOH guidelines, we are strongly discouraging visitation in Skilled Nursing at this time until this current outbreak resolves. We ask that those who do choose to visit use caution and keep their mask on at all times.
Personal Care and Memory Support
We remain thankful that no residents or team members have tested positive for COVID-19 in recent weeks.
We were made aware of 1 positive resident in RL who tested positive for COVID-19. There are no changes to any procedures at this time.
