Good afternoon, Residents and Families,
Today we learned that a Seacrest at Home caregiver, who was working with a client in our Independent Living Residence, tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. The caregiver’s last day worked was November 27. I was previously asked how one could work their shift and then by the end of their shift, test positive for the virus. In this case, the caregiver was asymptomatic and tested negative before the start of the shift. By the end of the shift, the caregiver developed symptoms and took another rapid test, and unfortunately the second time tested positive.
Contact tracing has taken place and those exposed were notified. Further, we continue to follow the CDC Guidelines and report this information to all mandated agencies.
We know that recently there has been a spike in COVID-19 cases as well as the flu and RSV. We continue to be concerned for the safety of our residents and staff. As a community, we are all working hard to protect everyone, and we hope that you will remain vigilant in practicing safe infection control. We will get through this next surge if we all do our part.
If you have a visit planned to any of our buildings on campus and are not feeling well, please postpone your visit and get tested. We continue to encourage all visitors to take a rapid test before visiting your loved one. Residents, if you have any symptoms, please contact our staff for a rapid test, and stay safe.
Lastly, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns.
