Coronavirus COVID-19

July 15, 2020

Dear Gilpin Hall Family,

This is to inform you that as a result of this week's testing of asymptomatic staff, we had one additional staff member test positive for COVID-19. This staff member will be sent for re-testing and, if we receive a negative result from the re-test, we will follow up with an additional test to confirm results. Until that time, and appropriately thereafter, the staff member will self-isolate. We will be in daily contact to assess symptoms in order to determine a safe return to work date.

As an update, the two staff members who previously tested positive have now recovered and are back to work.

The safety and well-being of all residents and staff remain our top priority and we continue our efforts to minimize risk based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Delaware Public Health (DPH).

Due to government privacy requirements, we cannot divulge specific information about any individual who has confirmed or suspected COVID-19. Please direct any questions to .

I will keep you informed as we move forward.
