Update February 1, 2021
Results of employee testing last week revealed one positive rapid antigen point of care test result for an employee with no symptoms. The employee was re-tested using the molecular test and sent home until the test result was confirmed. We received confirmation of a positive test result for this employee. We will resume weekly testing for all residents due to the positive employee test. Additionally, we are continuing with bi-weekly employee testing due to the continued high positivity rate in Lancaster County. This week, the county remains above 10% at 10.8% although it continues to decline.
Our next COVID-19 Vaccine clinic will be held Saturday February 6th. Please make sure that you have returned your consent forms to get the second dose of the vaccine. Anyone who did not receive their first dose may sign up to get their first dose this Saturday. We will be contacting families of residents who have not returned the second consent form. Newly admitted residents should have received their consents or they were mailed to the responsible party. Please contact the facility if you have questions.
