Weekly Skilled Nursing Canton/Assisted Living update for the week of June 12, 2020:
We continue to have no new residents or staff test positive since May 9, 2020. Our one resident and our medical provider are fully recovered.
Staff have been tested twice weekly since the governor’s executive order issued last month. As of this week, that order has been extended until July 9, 2020, but reduced to once weekly testing per employee. We will continue to communicate any positive tests to all residents and family members and/or representatives within 24 hours or by 5:00 pm the following day.
We continue with many other preventative measures, which include no visitation, staff screening for fever and respiratory symptoms, mask use by staff and residents, daily resident monitoring for symptoms, restricted group, and dining activities, and social distancing when possible. There are still no updates regarding opening the building for visitors. Please reach out to our Activities department if you are interested in alternative means of connecting with loved ones. We continue to coordinate phone calls, video chats, emails, and window visits to maintain family and friend connections. We understand how difficult these restrictions are and want to accommodate to the best of our abilities. Thank you all for your patience and stay safe.
