Dear Residents, Families, and Staff
This letter is to alert you that today, November 25, 2020, through the results of testing of all residents and employees, that one of our direct care staff tested positive for COVID-19. We are actively monitoring as the results of the testing to assure that no residents or other staff are positive. We are monitoring our staff and residents for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and are working with our local and state health departments.
We will be conducting weekly testing to monitor if there are any further positive cases. We will have our next testing on Tuesday December 1st.
All of our staff members continue to follow public health recommendations to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. These include monitoring temperatures upon arrival and leaving and questioning regarding Covid symptoms and contacts. We also enforce strict handwashing procedures, hand sanitizing, wearing facemasks, not touching your face and social distancing when possible.
To minimize the risk of our residents becoming sick with COVID-19, we are suspending all visits at the current time to Wesley Enhanced Living Burholme. This decision is being made in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). We understand that connecting with family members is important. Other ways to connect include telephone, email, text, or through Skype or Facebook.
We will keep you posted. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Sis Wichterman, Personal Care Administrator
Daniel Frost, Executive Director
