Dear Residents, Families and Employees:
This week the employees, health center and personal care residents were COVID-19 tested. We continue to remain COVID-19 free. The unfortunate news is that the positivity rate in Philadelphia has increased this past week to 3.9% from 2.7% the week prior. If the positivity rate increases to 5%, testing will be required bi-weekly for employees, regardless of the vaccination status.
Masks must be worn in all public areas. Please note that masks are not optional and must cover your nose and mouth.
For all visitors, we strongly encourage you to be vaccinated, if you are not. Please do your part, to keep our residents and employees safe, as well as other visitors to our community. Walk-in vaccinations are available at various pharmacies such as Walgreen’s, Rite-Aid and CVS. Our pharmacy partner, Friendship Pharmacy, is also offering COVID-19 vaccinations by appointment.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me directly at the email address firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone.
Suzanne H. Lachman, LNHA
