Good Samaritan Home was notified that one employee tested positive for COVID-19. Neighborhoods have
entered into different quarantine statuses based on their exposure levels.
  
We stand by our commitment to the health and safety of our residents and staff. We
continue to take precautions, which includes:
– Continued screening of all staff members and other essential persons entering our facility for
symptoms related to COVID-19.
– Continued screening of all residents with routine vitals daily, screening before and after
resident leaves the building, and continuous observation for signs & symptoms of COVID-19.
– Continued disinfecting of resident rooms, common areas, and high-traffic areas multiple times
daily.
– All staff will continue to wear masks and practice good hand hygiene.
– Fully vaccinated residents can participate in communal dining without physical distancing
while at the dining table. Unvaccinated residents must continue to remain at least 6 feet from
others. (This means that only fully vaccinated residents are allowed to eat at the same table
without physically distancing).
– Beauty Shop appointments will continue for in-house residents that are not in quarantine
and/or isolation precautions. There are no changes to their guidelines. Only one resident per
stylist will be permitted. Social distancing will be implemented. Residents and stylist must
wear a mask at all times. Residents are not allowed to wait in or outside the beauty shop for
their appointment. Proper disinfection/sanitizing will be performed between each
appointment.
– Indoor visitation has resumed. Visitation hours are from 7:00a-8:00p. It is no longer required
that you schedule your visit in advance. Please see the updated Resident Connection
Programs Policy for more information.
We will communicate new information with families, residents, staff, and the community as
it becomes available to us. For any questions or concerns, please contact your loved one’s
designated social service aide.
Thank you for your patience, prayers, and understanding during this time.
