We are seeing resident activity develop in one of our households in regards to COVID-19. We are testing at a much higher frequency in this area and doing our best to implement further mitigation efforts. Please know this can be a difficult task when providing services to individuals with a cognitive deficit who are unable to understand such safety measures like social distancing or wearing a mask. We will continue to monitor residents in this household as the next 14 days could show more positive resident cases.
Any COVID-19 positive resident is moved to a private room in our COVID isolation area for at least 10 days. The area is secluded from the remainder of the residents in the facility. We continue to have communication with Public Health and related healthcare partners during this time.
