As a result of the facility-wide resident tests last week, Good Samaritan Home was notified that one of our residents tested positive for COVID-19. At this time, the residents in the affected neighborhood remain in a full quarantine with residents quarantined to their rooms. All other units will return to a neighborhood quarantine. The family of the positive resident has been notified.

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 several times a day with vital signs and temperature checks.
• Residents quarantined to their neighborhoods.
• Neighborhood van rides will resume with proper COVID-19 precautions, such as social distancing, regular sanitation, and the requirement of masks.
• Beauty shop closure.
• 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.

We continue to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), and the Adams County Health Department.

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 and understanding during this time.
