On Monday and Tuesday, December 22 and 23, we tested a total of 156 employees and; 54 health center residents and 9 personal care residents. In that group we received one positive employee test result last evening. One is one too many, but we are trending in the right direction, as well as the city of Philadelphia.
As was the case in the Spring/early Summer, we cannot begin to explore the idea of in person visits until we are at least 14 days with no new positive COVID-19 cases, AND the positivity rate in the city must be much lower.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have by phone or directly to my email.
