Skilled Nursing and PC Memory Support have continued conducting outbreak testing as a result of prior positive COVID-19 tests. In the past week, we have had no positive tests in Skilled Nursing, Personal Care or Memory Support. We have been notified of three RL residents who tested positive for COVID-19 recently.
The community transmission rate for Lancaster County is now considered “High”. This requires additional testing procedures for team members in Skilled Nursing. Please check with your supervisor for the most up to date testing requirements.
Though we are required to continue outbreak testing for a minimum of one more week, we will be opening the dining rooms to residents this week. All team members will be tested a minimum of 1X per week, must wear an N-95 mask and eye protection at all times, and a gown during resident care. Visitation is permitted but it is imperative that all visitors continue to wear a mask at all times while visiting and ensure they are checking in at the kiosk at the main entrance.
Due to recent positive tests, Memory Support continues to be open for compassionate care visitation only. All team members will continue to be tested a minimum of 1X per week, must wear an N-95 mask and eye protection at all times, and wear a gown during resident care.
Personal care remains COVID-19 free and is open to visitors. Team members in Personal Care should review the PPE and testing guidelines to ensure they are being met.
While we are not making any changes at this point to Residential Living procedures, we would strongly encourage Residential Living residents to be cautious and take precautions as necessary. We have a few positive cases in our community but also a growing number of positive cases outside our community.
