Residents and Families,
Since my memo on 11/9 informing you of the two positive cases within our Employee population, one more Employee has tested positive and two additional Employees are experiencing symptoms. The numbers of positive cases keep rising in Philadelphia and across the country, therefore it is as important as it ever was that we all practice safe distancing, wearing masks in public and washing our hands frequently or use sanitizer if soap and water are not readily available.
As has been recommended by regulatory agencies and has been the on-going practice, Health Care Center and Personal Care Residents are not permitted to leave the community except for clinical reasons.
I am urging all Independent Living Residents to avoid offsite family gatherings and to enjoy the company of your friends here in our community. Those who choose to leave for a holiday dinner with family and friends will be required to quarantine for 14 days upon their return.
Your continued patience and understanding will be appreciated as continue to initiate our protocols to keep everyone as safe as possible during this pandemic. Please do not hesitate to contact us with your questions or concerns. You can send also e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please take care of yourselves, and I will be in touch again soon.
