Executive Director: Weekly COVID-19 Update October 29, 2020

Dear Residents, Families and Employees:

Philadelphia County reported 5% positivity rate of COVID-19 testing in the most recent update, up from the 3.4% reported last week.  We must now test all health center employees only a weekly basis until such time that the rate would drop below 5% again. 

The tests completed this week have yielded all negative results to date.  All of the first floor health center resident results are in as well as numerous staff members.  We continue to be diligent with our cleaning, sanitizing, face masks, and other precautionary measures. 

A reminder to anyone who will be visiting our residents next week, proof of your flu vaccination will be required to be provided to us or you will not be allowed access to visit.  We have achieved 100% flu vaccination amongst staff members.

As I mentioned last week visitors (residents and staff are using it currently) will now experience an automated health screening process that is incorporated in the visitor registration system.  The Accushield system is located in the vestibule at the main entrance.  Every visitor who is entering WEL Pennypack Park will be required to:
