Hello Seacrest Residents, Family Members and Associates,
Today we received notification that two of our nursing employees who work in the Goldberg Health Care Center have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Both employees were last on our Seacrest campus today, December 22, 2021. We have reported this new case to the Department of Health as mandated, and the employees are at home in quarantine. Unfortunately, one employee is not feeling well; we ask you to join us in wishing a speedy recovery. Contact tracing has begun and we will be testing all staff and residents.
To the families of those whose loved ones reside in our Goldberg Health Care Center-
We will not be eliminating visits, although we highly discourage them, whether on campus or off site, until all resident and staff test results are returned, and we know the magnitude of exposure.
That said, if you feel you must come, all visitors are required to enter through the Lipinsky Administration Building off Saxony Lane. At that time, you will check in and be provided a N95 mask which you will required to wear throughout your entire visit.
Until further notice, residents who reside in other buildings on the campus should refrain from entering the Goldberg Health Care Center.
To the families whose loved ones reside in our Leichtag Assisted Living Residence-
We are pleased to share that effective tomorrow December 23, 2021, our AL residents will no longer be in quarantine. Our dining room will re-open for meals, beginning with breakfast, and small group activities will resume.
While we had hoped our last communication would not be the beginning of new cases, we are learning that we should expect that there will be more and that this may indeed be a challenging winter. We remain hopeful but are asking for everyone’s full cooperation.
Residents, if you are going out of the building, please wear a mask. If you are going to someone’s home, please make sure they are vaccinated. By not taking these precautions, we risk bringing this virus back to the hundreds of people living and working at Seacrest. We want you to know that the entire Seacrest staff is concerned, and we are doing everything we can to mitigate the spread of this virus. However, we need your cooperation.
Our best defense at this point is for all of us to wear masks, socially distance, and be fully vaccinated.
Now is the time for each of us to increase awareness and efforts.
