Resident and Families:
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. Part of this effort is to encourage residents (and urge families to encourage residents) to:
- Wearing masks when outside of their rooms;
- Engaging in good hand hygiene; and
- Practicing social distancing when outside of their rooms.
We have been assessing and monitoring staff and residents for signs and symptoms of the virus and residents for any changes in condition on a regular basis. Should we note any changes with a resident, we will contact resident’s primary healthcare provider and family/responsible parities to discuss next steps. We also have access to a limited amount of rapid on-site COVID tests if signs or symptoms are noted.
We are still closed to indoor visitation. However, appointments for outdoor visits can be scheduled by contacting our Activity Director, Louisa Barrera.
Thank you for all of your support during this pandemic. We will provide you with updates about any changes in our Community or when we learn about the availability and timing of vaccines for our residents.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
