Covid-19 testing of both Resident and Employees continue at this time. In transparency the facility currently has 4 Residents in the facility that are positive for COVID-19, 168 residents pending weekly results and unfortunately, we suffered with the total loss of 20 Residents to the Covid-19 virus. We are happy to announce that we have had 100 residents successfully recover from COVID-19. We will continue to track these numbers and inform you of the changes as they occur. We ask that everyone is being vigilant with PPE & mask usage and we continuously encourage safe social distancing.
July 1, 2020 the facility began to open the resident dining/recreation rooms to small group activities and small group lunch that is closely monitored by staff and assure 6 ft social distancing. Recreation & Nursing staff will work out a schedule to accommodate all residents being given an opportunity to allow them time in the recreation room. The Rehab Gym for Therapy services will open with a maximum of 4 residents being treated in the gym at a time.
