ONE EMPLOYEE TESTS POSITIVE
After beginning our facility-wide testing, we were informed this morning that one of our employees tested positive for COVID-19 (following the positive resident test). This specific employee was asymptomatic and is now quarantined at home. We will be conducting the remaining tests through Friday and will keep you updated as we receive results. At this time, the facility is still entered into a full quarantine with residents quarantined to their individual rooms.
Window visits are still allowed at this time. However, the window must remain closed at all times and under no circumstances should the window be opened.
More details are to come as we receive further guidance from the Adams County Health Department. The health and safety of our residents and staff remain our top priority as we continue to follow proper COVID-19 guidelines and procedures regarding both residents and staff.
For any questions or concerns, please contact your loved one’s designated social service aide. Thank you for your continued patience, understanding, and support.
