We had zero new resident or staff positives in last week’s round of mass testing. This week’s mass testing occurred today. Winter weather on the east coast has delayed the delivery of the Moderna Vaccine to the state. We were notified by the state that there is not sufficient inventory to complete our second vaccine clinic tomorrow, February 19. We will inform you of the next steps regarding the residents expecting the second dose of the vaccine as soon as we have more information from the state. However, we will be offering the Pfizer vaccine to residents scheduled to receive their first dose in a clinic on February 20th.

We wanted to update you on the latest information about COVID in our Community. In our last round of mass testing on January 6, all staff and residents tested as negative. However, in our most recently round of weekly testing, we had 9 individuals in our Memory Care test positive and one staff member. On January 10, we had a resident who was transported off-site for care test positive for the virus as well. No staff tested as positive during the January 12 mass testing.
After our most recent round of weekly testing on a random portion of our staff and residents, we had no new positive cases. We are currently awaiting additional testing kits so we can conduct testing on all staff and residents. We do have some kits available to do in-house testing of residents that may display signs or symptoms of the virus. We have been told the kits may come in today, but the holiday tomorrow may delay the receipt.
I am sure many of you are aware of the current surge in COVID positive cases throughout the country and in California. Given this surge, we wanted to provide you an update with what is going on related to COVID in our Community. As of the date of this letter, we have had not positive cases for our residents or our staff members. We continue to engage in infection control measures to prevent the spread of the virus into our building.
