Re: COVID Update for the Week of November 23, 2022
To our Facility Community,
There is nothing better than spending the holidays with our loved ones. As Thanksgiving is approaching we must remind you to refrain from coming to the facility if you are feeling ill, have been exposed to someone with COVID, or have tested positive. If you have any of the above please contact the facility to arrange for another mode of visitation such as face-time, zoom or skype. We ask this to keep our residents and staff as safe and healthy as possible.
Due to the increase in respiratory illness this year, we encourage you to talk to your doctor about the flu vaccine and keeping up to date with COVID vaccinations. This will keep you and your loved ones safe during this time of the year. We, ask you to be mindful of Infection Control practices, including performing good hand hygiene while at the facility and limit visiting with others. Again if you do have cold symptoms of any type, please stay home and feel better.
Our County’s community COVID transmission remains high so masking is still required. The facility monitors community transmission rate on a weekly basis and will make revisions in accordance with facility policy. The facility will post signs at the entrance notifying you of the current “mask” requirement.
We continue to work very hard to protect our residents; staff take all necessary precautions to prevent COVID-19 and we encourage all community members to do the same.
We wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for allowing us to care for your loved one.
