We completed testing again in the Meadows due to the requirement for 2 weeks with no positives and they have all returned negative. No one who had tested positive showed any symptoms. There are no new positives in any other unit. We will continue to test until we have 2 weeks without any positives and we are continuing to test staff. Delaware County went up again to 7.9% from 7.3% positivity.
The general sentiment is that the increase in positivity is directly related to Thanksgiving and the increase in family/friends engagement. We continue to offer boosters onsite for anyone who has not gotten one yet, including any family members. Our next clinic is this coming Monday. We have completed flu shots at the site for staff and residents.
The most recent twist in the plot is the Omicron variant of the Covid virus. Not a lot is known about this variant, but the best approach is to get vaccinated and if you have been vaccinated, get boosted! Continue to observe safe habits while in public and especially when you are onsite at WEL Main Line! Thank you all and keep your fingers crossed that the rate goes back down!
