Dear Clients, Families and Team Members:

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

In order to continue to cohort any positive residents to be cared for by dedicated "COVID staff", we did another round of testing on the residents in the West Campus today. We had 2 additional residents at the West Campus test positive today.

We will do a re-test of all clients on Friday, December 4th to determine if and how much it has spread to other clients (if at all). Since residents have been quarantining since Monday, we are hopefully we are near the end of the spread to residents and can work on getting everyone healthy back on a trajectory we had at the East Campus this week.

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

All visitors are paused until further notice.

We will re-test to clear our 14 day (all negative) requirement on Monday, December 7th.

Visits, communal dining, other activities are still paused until further notice.

We are resumed Wellness on a 1-1 basis at the East Campus only today.

No news is good news!!!

Essential Caregivers ALL CAMPUSES are PAUSED until further notice.

Staff are being tested a minimum of 1x/week, and more often if needed due to symptoms, possible exposures, etc.

Current Overall COVID cases:

  • West Campus Active # of Residents COVID+ as of today: 9 active cases
  • East Campus Active # of Residents COVID+ as of today: 2 active cases
  • South Campus Active # of Residents COVID+ as of today: 0 active cases

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.
