Dear Residents and Families,
Today we learned that a member of our Housekeeping Department tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. The last day the employee worked was February 15th in our Assisted Living Residence. We have conducted contract tracing and notified anyone who may have been exposed. We have also contacted all mandated agencies and continue to follow CDC guidelines for returning to work. Unfortunately, our employee is exhibiting symptoms; we know you join us in sending healing thoughts for a full and complete recovery.
As we continue to plan and prepare for our “new normal” we ask that you please follow our visiting protocols. Families, please remember you must schedule your visits in advance. Please arrive timely for check-in and remember to bring your vaccination card so it can be downloaded into our new system.
Residents, please remember to wear your masks when in our common areas, and during programs. We also request you to wear masks when in public and take this precautionary measure given you live in a community with so many others.
We are pleased that our Independent and Assisted Living dining rooms have reopened, and more programming is now available for our residents to enjoy. We continue to monitor the daily cases in San Diego as well as the number of cases we have at Seacrest, and eventually hope to allow visitors inside our community to see your loved ones in their apartments. That said, we aren’t there yet. Last week, SD County reported an average of 970 of new COVID-19 cases per day. We are still very concerned for the safety of you and your loved ones.
Many people continue to ask how they can support the COVID HEROES FUND. You can do so easily by visiting our website at www.seacrestfoundation.org or simply mail your gift to Seacrest Foundation. Thank you for helping to make the days a little brighter for our staff who are on the front line and are truly our heroes in every sense of the word.
Thank you for your continued support and trust in how we have managed the pandemic these past two years. We know it’s been incredibly hard on everyone. With each of us doing our part, we will get through this.
