Update from Administrator – November 11, 2020

November 11, 2020
Dear Families and Friends,
As always, our team and I hope this email finds you safe and healthy.
Since last week’s update some additional residents and staff have tested positive covid-19. Staff who are positive are quarantining at home while residents who are for positive have all been moved to the same unit. This unit is staffed with the same group employees so as to contain the spread to other parts of the building. All staff and of residents are being tested on a weekly basis. Please call us if you have any concerns or questions about your loved one. Also, for the time being all patio and indoor visits have been suspended. Virtual visits continue as usual.
Last week, more than 35 nursing homes across the state reported new staff and/or resident cases of covid-19 in their centers. Due to these numbers, CT DPH has ordered weekly testing of all staff to further safeguard against covid entering our center, effective November 1st. We are reminding our staff to not only practice safeguards against covid in our center, but to be vigilant outside of our center and share these practices with their friends and loved ones.
Please wear your mask, wash your hands, and watch your distance. These are simple things we must continue to do, not just in our centers, but in our personal lives to keep covid out!
As always, thank you for your patience and please stay safe and healthy!
Family Meeting on Zoom TODAY at 4pm
