Today, we sent 206 staff swabs for processing. We will conclude this round of staff testing tomorrow from 7:30 to noon. We are hopeful that we will clear our outbreak on August 14th if all testing returns negative. We heard today, along with others that COVID-19 vaccines will be mandatory for all individuals working in a healthcare setting beginning October 1st. Since vaccines have been available, we have strongly encouraged all members of our care team to get the vaccine, it however has not been mandatory. There will be more to come regarding our plan to meet these requirements in the coming days and weeks.
Stay safe and stay healthy!
