We have had another positive in an IL resident. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. This resident has also gotten the first dose of the vaccine, so the hope is that they will be provided protection from more severe symptoms. We have begun the contact tracing in relation to both residents and staff who may have had close contact with this resident. If you have not been notified, no close contact has been identified. Please contact wellness if you show any signs or symptoms.
We have had one positive this week with our staff rapid testing. This staff member does not have wide spread contact with multiple residents, but we will conduct contact tracing with other staff that may have come in contact
We continue to have no positives in the Pines.
We have no new positives in the Meadows.
Our clinic tomorrow starts at 10 am for staff and will begin at 11 am for our residents. As a reminder we will contact you directly when it is your time to come down for the shot. We will have the same routine for this clinic, but we have all of the paperwork prepared ahead of time, so it should be even smoother. We will have coffee and snacks available for you while you wait the period of time for us to track your reactions and we will then send you back to your apartments so we can keep the train rolling. We also have some activities planned in the Energy Club if you are too excited to return home! Once again, this is the next step towards more normal circumstances, but we still need to keep our vigilance as we progress through these steps.
