Residents and Families,
We had another good week. We still haven’t had a Resident test positive since 6/18/2020 and the last time an Employee tested positive was 5/20/2020. There are only three Residents who remain in our red quarantine zone. Testing of all Employees and HCC Residents occurred on 7/15/2020 and went very smoothly. We should have the results of this testing within the next 72 hours. Required testing of all Personal Care Residents is due to be completed by 8/31/2020. With Philadelphia still being partially green and our Governor increasing restrictions, there are no changes to our visitation policies.
There are lots of signs of improvement in this situation; you just need to know where to look. Independent Living had their first “Socially-distanced Social” this week utilizing the Main Dining Room, patio, and gazebo. Residents chatted and caught up while remaining safely distanced. The beans our Health Care Residents planted in the new raised beds are working their way up the lattice. Our Personal Care Residents are taking full advantage of our spacious front porch to check out what is going on in the Neighborhood and to check-in with each other.
Thank you to all for the expressions of gratitude you have shared with regards to the work our wonderful Employees continue to perform. In times of stress, a kind word can have a major impact. Please take care of yourselves, and I will be in touch again soon.
