It is most unfortunate that we have had an employee test positive with the rapid test on March 25. We are awaiting the results of their lab test to confirm the PCR test. This employee has been fully vaccinated.
The last of the COVID vaccination clinic will occur Saturday, March 27. This clinic will complete the second vaccination for personal care residents and some independent and health center residents, as well as staff members.

Unfortunately, the COVID positivity rate in Philadelphia has gone up for the third week in a row. For the period of March 18 – 25 the rate reported is 7.2%. We do not anticipate that this will affect our visiting schedules or the opening of the Fireside Dining Room.
Activities is adding the Dollar Store back to the calendar in April and watch for information on the Phillies Opening Day activities. We anticipate re-opening the gym in April as well.
