Dear Friends of the Jeanne Jugan Center,
For the health and safety of everyone in our Home, and because the positivity rate of COVID-19 for Jackson County has grown recently, we have been testing our employees weekly for the last several weeks. The most recent round of testing returned a positive result for one contracted staff member. This person was asymptomatic and will be off of work according to current CDC guidelines. In the meantime, we will test all of our Residents to make sure that they are still COVID-free, and also re-test all of the employees.
We are following guidance from the CDC and the state and local health departments for best practices and procedures to protect everyone’s health, and because of the positive test, we will need to stop outdoor visits until further notice.
We will keep you informed as more information becomes available.
Thank you and God Bless,
“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
