 Today we continued our universal testing of residents and staff following our last positive employee result on 2/21.  There have been no new positive test results.  We still have 15 employees to test tomorrow.  If all are negative, we will open to indoor visits again as planned and as described in the post of 3/5.   I will post  an update tomorrow once all the tests have been completed.  

As you may know, the CDC issued new guidance today on individuals who have been fully vaccinated.  Unfortunately, there are no changes to what we are required to do in health care facilities.  The guidelines that came out do not apply to long term care so we must wait for guidance from CDC, CMS and/or PA DOH to make any changes to our processes.  I want to make sure that you are aware of this so it does not create confusion.   

As always, please feel free to contact us if you have questions.
