We are committed to continual communication regarding the status of our communities and Covid-19. We have been making regular updates on our Facebook page regarding Covid-19. We have now started adding these updates to our updated website in our newsroom. Our emergency response banner listed at the top of our website is up to date with our company-wide efforts regarding Covid-19 and infection control and prevention.
In our last update, we shared that we received one positive test result for a staff member, since then we have received one positive result for a resident. That team member is isolating away from the community and we are issuing more testing of residents and staff. All received results for residents and staff have come back negative. Some tests are still pending.
We are offering scheduled virtual visits with loved ones at this time. Due to rising Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations, Governor Brown has issued a pause for in-person visitations for Marion County until November 25th. We are committed to keeping our staff and residents safe and will take all necessary steps to do so. While we want nothing more than to have our residents and family members gather in person, health and safety comes first. In the meantime, we are scheduling virtual visits with family members, making sure our residents are engaged, and making plans for a safe return for visitation as soon as we are able.
