I am pleased to report that all Residents are now off of precautions and considered to be recovered!!! We are currently conduction surveillance testing according to MA DPH and CMS guidelines. We received notification today that 1 asymptomatic contractor tested positive for COVID19 during surveillance testing. The employee has been notified and will complete the required quarantine. The Board of Health and the MA DPH have been notified. Any people identified as close contacts will be notified. All previously negative Residents will be tested. The cumulative number of clusters of 3 or more Residents/Staff exhibiting respiratory symptoms within 72 hours of each other is 0 (YTD Cumulative Confirmed Positive Residents is 67). We had placed our COVID-19 positive Residents on precautions and isolation per the CDC guidelines in an effort to mitigate the spread. Further, we are in contact with the appropriate agencies to assist us with PPE as needed. At this time we have all appropriate and necessary PPE available and staff are wearing all recommended PPE when caring for our Residents. This is an unprecedented time and we want you to know we grieve with you and for you. I have spoken to many of you over the past few months and weeks and want to thank you for your support, encouragement and prayers. As always we will continue to do our best every day and your loved one’s safety and well-being are our top priority.
