Dear Families and Friends,
I must write to let you know, that once again, our weekly all-staff testing for the Coronavirus resulted with one staff member testing positive 10/14. This person was asymptomatic and will be off work according to current CDC guidelines. In the meantime, we immediately tested all Residents to make sure that they are still COVID-free. We are pleased to report that all Residents are still negative at this time. We will retest all Residents again late next week.
The staff member worked on the 1st floor. As an added precaution, per the health department, all Residents on the 1st floor will have to quarantine in their rooms for 14 days.
We continue to monitor staff, Residents and anyone who comes into the Home. We will be restricting outdoor visits for 1st floor Residents at least 14 days, or until we are sure that everyone is COVID-free again. We encourage family members to schedule window visits if weather permits. 2nd and 3rd floor Residents can have scheduled outdoor visits at this time, again weather permitting.
We know this is disheartening news for everyone, and yet we are blessed that all Residents remain negative at this time and the outbreak at this time is only one.
We know that the Lord is with us and will continue to guide us. We count on your prayers. Our prayers are with you and your family. We have a favor to ask — if you happen to live in the area, we know that our Residents would surely enjoy some Halloween treats. Thank you so much!
God bless you and keep well and stay safe.
“It is a difficult time for everyone. For many, very difficult. Let us try, if we can, to make the best use of this time: let us be generous; let us help those in need in our neighborhood; let us look out for the loneliest people, perhaps by telephone or social networks; let us pray to the Lord for those who are in difficulty in the world. Even if we are isolated, thought and spirit can go far with the creativity of love. This is what we need today: the creativity of love.” -Pope Francis
