COVID-19 Vaccine Update

If your loved one received the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on December 23 or January 13, they will have an opportunity to receive the second and final dose. CVS Health will be on site February 3 to administer the vaccine. This date is tentative and we will let you know once it is confirmed.
Ongoing Safety Precautions

Although the vaccine is a step in the right direction, we are not letting our guard down. We continue to adhere to the following safety precautions to protect and care for residents and staff on campus.

  • Per Department of Health (DOH) recommendations, please do not take residents out of Rosa Coplon except for medically necessary appointments. Staying onsite is the best way to protect residents from contracting COVID-19.
  • Care for residents with COVID-19 is provided within one unit to prevent the potential spread. We continue to work closely with the DOH to follow the latest recommendations and requirements.
  • To ensure safety for everyone, all staff wear personal protective equipment required by the DOH, including N95 masks, eye protection throughout all units and resident areas (face shields or goggles), gowns, and gloves. Staff training on best practices has been ongoing as we strive to provide the best possible care. In addition, we continue to follow DOH guidelines to test staff for COVID-19.
  • Our facility uses a comprehensive, science-based disinfection program. We are extremely lucky to have a pulsed UV disinfection system proven to eliminate pathogens such as coronavirus from surfaces in seconds. This technology is also used in many hospitals. In addition, we continue to use our Storm 2 Pro Dual Pressure sprayer to help with sanitizing here on campus. The pressure sprayer can penetrate difficult areas beyond just surface cleaning. Our 7-step cleaning process follows CDC infection control guidance using hospital-grade disinfectants.

We currently have six residents and two employees who have tested positive for COVID-19. Per the DOH guidelines, restricted in-person visitation is tentatively scheduled to resume Feb. 4, pending we have no new cases of COVID-19 for 14 consecutive days, and pending there are no changes in DOH regulations regarding visitation.

What Happens When an Employee Tests Positive?
Weinberg Campus employees are continuously tested for COVID-19 on an ongoing basis per DOH guidelines. If an employee tests positive for the virus, the following actions are taken:

  • The employee is immediately furloughed for a minimum of 14 days.
  • Contact tracing is conducted to identify potential risks of further virus exposure.
  • The employee must present a negative COVID-19 test result prior to returning to Weinberg Campus.
If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
