We have learned today, Friday December 11, 2020, that one of our staff has tested positive for COVID-19 during a recent post contact testing.
At this time, it appears that this employee’s interactions with others in the community have been limited.
We are working on contact tracing and will notify staff and residents who may have come in contact with this employee and keep them apprised of any necessary measures. If you are not contacted, you have not come in close contact.
Please keep the staff member in your thoughts.
With the current increases in positive COVID results in Montgomery County (currently 12.1%, up from 10.2% a week ago) and the increasing rates in adjoining counties; Bucks – 17.7%, Philadelphia – 14.8%, Berks – 17.0%, we are continuing to preclude group activities.
We are continuing with dining in the Cornerstone, but I am asking that you dine with the same group on a regular basis. Also, please comply with wearing your mask while not eating, before your meal, while ordering your meal, and after you have finished eating.
Resist the Urge and Help Fight the Surge! I am encouraging you to stay on campus unless necessary for medical necessity and minimal shopping. Please continue to be vigilant while on and off campus; maintain social distance and facial covering if you are out of your apartment and wash your hands frequently in addition to using hand sanitizer. It is your best defense against this difficult virus. Please be sure to register out and in when leaving campus. As always, please contact wellness with any concerns about your health.
We are hopeful that with following these efforts we can contain and prevent further positive cases.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns.
