Today started another round of staff testing. We swabbed and sent 215 samples to the lab for processing. We will swab the remainder of our staff tomorrow. We continue to be in close contact and follow the guidance of the CDC. Per recommendations we are able to have outdoor family visitations. We are grateful that the weather has been cooperative, so these are enjoyable for all parties involved. As we know, there is a low likelihood of transmission outside as there is increased airflow and space. At this time, we do not have to do regular testing of the residents outside of testing 5 days after admission and if symptoms are developed. We will continue to post updates with results and guidance changes as they occur.
Stay safe and stay healthy!
