Dear Residents and Families,

We have two employees who work in the nursing department of GHC who tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. One last worked on January 21st and the other last worked January 22nd. Thankfully, one has minor symptoms, and the other is asymptomatic. As always, we have conducted contact tracing, notified those exposed, and contacted all mandated agencies. We know you join us in wishing all those with COVID-19 a speedy recovery.

As we continue to confront this pandemic, please know that we receive test results in various ways and at various times. This is due to our direct care staff and those assigned to work in our healthcare buildings, taking rapid tests prior to their shift and conducting PCR tests for residents and staff, using two different labs. That said, we are committed to sharing these updates with you soon after learning the news to keep everyone informed. This recent surge is a sad reminder of how fast this virus spreads and the need for everyone to take precautions by wearing masks properly, avoiding large crowds, and maintaining social distances.

We appreciate the support of so many who have graciously contributed to our COVID-19 HEROES FUND so that we can continue to show our gratitude to our dedicated associates. If you are interested in participating, just visit our website at or simply mail your gift to Seacrest Foundation and designate COVID-19. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Stay well everyone. We know this is hard yet remain confident that with each of us doing our part, we will get through this together.

Best regards,

Pam Ferris
President and CEO
The Melvin Garb Foundation Presidential Chair
