Dear Clients, Families and Team Members:

Here is today's COVID updates, section by section.

We are on day 8 of our original positives last Monday. It can take up to 7 days or more for COVID to incubate; so even though everyone is in quarantine, we are still expecting to get more positive cases.

Nurses will call a resident's Emergency Contact personally if your loved one tests positive.

We did have 2 more test positive today.

Some good news...less than a week, our first group should have precautions lifted and many more each day after that! We have ordered balloons to celebrate next week! Also, this beautiful weather has been INCREDIBLE for getting all clients (even COVID positive ones) outside for a walk to get our lungs moving. Most clients got outside today and we plan to do it all again tomorrow! Note, COVID positive clients are walking with COVID staff with precautions in place.

All activities, wellness, community dining, etc., is paused until further notice.

All visitors are paused until further notice.

Please know that we are taking all actions we can to prevent the risk of further transmission of COVID-19. We are screening staff before their shift, creating isolation areas, wearing PPE, on-going education, cleaning and disinfecting frequently, limiting visitation, utilizing telehealth, etc.

If you have any general questions, please contact one of our nurses. 

Your support and trust in our care means the world to us. Your loved ones are the reason we are fighting our hardest to keep COVID out of Serenity. We love them very much.
