We currently have eight residents and nine employees who have tested positive for COVID-19, and one resident under investigation. Per the DOH guidelines, restricted in-person visitation is tentatively scheduled to resume Jan. 20, pending we have no new cases of COVID-19 for 14 consecutive days, and pending there are no changes in DOH regulations regarding visitation.
We understand there are many questions regarding visitation as residents and staff receive the COVID-19 vaccine. We continue to follow the recommendations and guidelines set forth by the DOH, and will update you as we learn more.
