During outbreak testing of Skilled Nursing residents and team members, two additional individuals have tested positive for COVID-19: One vaccinated team member and one vaccinated resident. We will continue to test all residents weekly, vaccinated team members weekly, non-vaccinated team members twice weekly. Two additional team members tested positive as well though they were not in the facility prior to the positive test.
Per updated CMS regulations, visitation is still permitted during this time. Visitors are required to check in at the front desk and MUST wear a face mask at all times while they are in the building. Per CMS guidance, we recommend all visitors be vaccinated but will not require it. We will begin asking visitors for vaccination status in the coming weeks prior to your visit but it will not change your ability to visit with your loved one.
If you are planning on taking your loved one out of the facility for the holidays, please let one of our team members know as soon as possible so we can ensure everything is in place for everyone to have a wonderful visit. A leave of absence form will need to be filled out and signed to ensure all individuals taking a resident out of the facility follow proper infection control and COVID-19 prevention best practices. The safety of our residents and your loved ones is our number one priority.
