The Meadows has seen 2 more positive tests returned in our residents. We have thankfully had no new deaths in the Meadows since our last update on 4/30. We continue to employ the most stringent infection control procedures we have at our disposal and we are hoping we have been able to get ahead of this outbreak. We continue to hold to our isolation for the residents and no visitors in the Meadows for the time being, but we are hopeful we can relax some of these in the near future if we see a decline in positive cases.
We have had no positive cases in the Pines with staff or residents to date. We are so thankful for this blessing to date and also hold to no visitors in this unit.
In the Independent Living unit, we sadly have had another death among our positive cases, which occurred while the resident was in the hospital. We still have one positive in the hospital recovering and our other positive cases continue to recover in their apartments. Please continue to maintain social distance and mask wearing if you must come out of your apartment and limit your time out of your apartment. As always, please contact wellness with any concerns about your health.
Our Covid positive staff continues to return from self quarantine as per CDC guidelines and all staff that is still in quarantine continues to recover. There has been no significant impact on staff’s health status, such as hospitalization or death.
We are working to start resuming community services, including our fitness program in the Energy Club, salon services, housekeeping, some very limited social activities, and in the more distant future, community dining. All of these services are very important to us as a staff as we know they are to you as community members. You will see more memos focusing directly on these efforts soon. Please stay safe and be well.
