We cannot be more excited to be a part of the beginning of the efforts to end the threat of Covid-19 by participating in vaccination clinics. While we are all ready to relax, we know that now it is more important than ever to continue using all of our tools to keep Covid-19 at bay, so that our community and our local areas can greatly reduce the threat of this virus.
Tools for fighting this virus include: wearing a mask, physical distancing, washing our hands, avoiding crowds, avoiding poorly ventilated areas, and getting the vaccine when given the opportunity.
Today we held our second vaccine clinic where residents and staff who received their first dose on December 30th received their final dose, and those who wished to get their first dose did so today. Since the vaccine is a two-part series, those who receive their initial vaccine today will be scheduled for their follow up dose in February.
Routine testing continues. With testing that was completed recently, we received positive results for 1 employee and 6 residents. The employee and residents will remain off-site in order to recover according to CDC Guidelines. We continue to monitor all residents for any Covid-19 relative symptoms. In the event a resident exhibits any symptoms or receives positive test results, our team will contact primary contacts directly.
