October 30, 2020
I am writing to inform you that one of our staff members, employed by another agency, has tested positive for COVID-19.
The employee’s last day of work in the Anthony John IRA was October 17, 2020. Therefore, all individuals will be quarantined until November 1, 2020. The Department of Health (DOH), Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) and local health authorities were notified. This in not easy news to share.
As of yesterday, we saw the highest number of positive COVID-19 cases in our region since the start of the pandemic.
But I can assure you that our Infection Control Team is and has been taking measures to protect your loved ones, who we cherish greatly. We have continued to operate under the Center for Disease Prevention and Control’s (CDC) strict protocols for infection control.
We remain fiercely committed to protecting your family member’s health and wellbeing.
Stay Safe and Be Well,
