Dear Residents, Families and Staff,
We have just received a report of a hospitalized, vaccinated, asymptomatic, Covid positive resident. In light of the increased positivity rate, Pennsylvania rate has risen to 5.4% and Philadelphia is 5% and the current situation with the Delta variant we have consulted with our Medical Director, Dr. Poulschock, and have decided to close to visitors until we have tested all residents and staff regardless of vaccine status.
We continue to monitor the number of changes to the CDC-COVID guidance including the increased need for use of masks while indoors.
The positivity rates in my previous letter were 1.1% for Pennsylvania and 1.8% for Philadelphia. In three weeks the Pennsylvania rate has risen to 5.4% and Philadelphia is 5%. These changes are alarming.
Wesley Enhanced Living (WEL) remains committed to the health and safety of our residents, employees, and visitors. WEL has mandated that all employees receive a completed series of the COVID -19 vaccine by September 1, 2021.
I would ask everyone who receives this memo to make an effort to keep encouraging those you know who have not received the vaccine to do their part! Please vaccinate, don’t procrastinate. It is obvious that vaccinations work! If a resident or staff member becomes vaccinated please notify us so that we can register your vaccination.
You can obtain your vaccine through the following link:
Thank you and stay WEL!
