Dear families and friends,
As of today, approximately 16,000 COVID-19 tests have been conducted on residents and staff throughout our locations. As you look at the numbers below, you will see that we now have two residents with active cases of COVID-19. We have come a long way in the past few months, much due to regular testing and necessary supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE). Although our numbers look much better today than they have in the past few months, strict infection control practices continue to be a priority. Staff members continue to wear PPE and residents and families are to wear masks and practice social distancing during visits. All of our locations continue to follow guidance from our state health departments, as well as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
We are happy to be in a better place today, but we continue on our journey of a new normal with extreme caution.
