We are committed to continual communication regarding the status of our communities and Covid-19. We have been making regular updates on our Facebook page regarding Covid-19. We have now started adding these updates to our updated website in our newsroom. Our emergency response banner listed at the top of our website is up to date with our company-wide efforts regarding Covid-19 and infection control and prevention.
On November 16th we sent out a letter to our resident's primary contacts sharing that we received information that an employee has received positive test results for Covid-19 during a routine health screening. This news has necessitated testing for all residents and staff. We will keep you updated if we receive any positive test results in our weekly update.
We currently do not have any residents or other staff with Covid-19 symptoms. We will continue with routine monitoring of all residents and notify you directly if your family member exhibits symptoms or receives positive test results.
Resident safety is our top priority, including staying in very close communication with the local health authority and state licensing officials. Please know that we have been and are continuing to strictly adhere to all infection control protocols and mandated guidelines. We want you to know that we will continue to take every precaution to prevent the spread of infection.
With that, effective immediately, outdoor and open window visits will be discontinued until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience. We will continue to offer closed window visits and virtual visits.
