As a result of the staff testing, Good Samaritan Home was notified that two of our employees tested positive for COVID-19. At this time, specific neighborhoods throughout the facility remain in a full room quarantine. Other neighborhoods also remain in a neighborhood quarantine. Restrictions continue to be lessened for those residents not in a room or neighborhood quarantine:
- Residents are permitted in outdoor courtyards that do not have public access.
- Residents are permitted to go to the general store.
- Activities are held in resident rooms and doorways.
- Private therapy sessions in the pool are permitted for internal residents not in room quarantine or droplet isolation only.
- Residents are not permitted to eat on other neighborhoods and the dining policy has not changed. Only one resident will be allowed per table to allow for social distancing.
- Beauty Shop closure.
All residents will continue to wear masks and practice social distancing whenever they leave their resident room.
On November 17th, the Governor announced that the entire state of Illinois enters Tier 3 Resurgence Mitigations on Friday, November 20th. This triggers more restrictions per IDPH guidance for our facility. Effective November 20th, 2020, we will be suspending all outdoor visits as a result of this announcement. We will keep you posted with any further changes.
If you have any questions regarding our current procedures, please feel free to contact your designated social service aide. Thank you so much for your patience, support, and understanding during this time. It is through our efforts as a family and as a community that we will remain strong together.
