With surveillance testing, we had an additional nursing facility team member who tested positive for COVID-19. All nursing facility residents have been tested and we are pleased to report there are no positive cases with residents.
We ask that you please remember to follow IDPH guidance as it relates to COVID-19. According to the CDC, if everyone wears a mask, over the next 4-8 weeks we could drastically reduce cases of COVID-19. Please do your part and encourage others to do the same.
As a reminder, we need the county positivity rate to drop to at least 10% before we are able to schedule indoor visits. The Eventide Campus utilizes the CMS data source found here to monitor county positive rates.
