 May 14, 2021   Dear Residents and Families, The purpose of this letter is to communicate updates regarding our Covid-19 reporting and the actions we continue to take to combat and protect our community.  We have had no new positive Covid-19 cases since I last reported on May 5th that  one staff member tested positive for Covid during our biweekly testing of staff. This staff member had been vaccinated. This employee had worked on A1/B1 and B2 units leading up to May 5th. Consequently, these units were changed to  Yellow Zones  which dictated that the residents on these units were placed on Transmission-Based Precautions due to known exposure and visitation on these units were suspended. Visitation for these units are now available starting May 15th. We appreciate your continued prayers and trust in the care and services we provide and for your understanding and support of any necessary adjustments as this situation evolves. Please feel free to contact me at  717-633-4520  with any que
May 5, 2021   Dear Residents and Families, The purpose of this letter is to communicate updates regarding our Covid-19 reporting and the actions we continue to take to combat and protect our community.  Last night one staff member tested positive for Covid during our biweekly testing of staff. This staff member was vaccinated and currently has cold-like symptoms. This employee has worked on A1/B1 and B2 units this past week. Consequently, these units are now Yellow Zones which dictates that the residents on these units are now on Transmission-Based Precautions due to known exposure. Visitation for these units are suspended for the next 14 days as long as we do not have any new positive cases on these units. If all goes well, May 15th the residents on these units will be available for visitation. Exception for visitation on A1/B1 and B2 during these next 14 days will be for Compassionate Care visits only. I will be contacting the responsible parties over the next 24 hours for those resi

  December 17, 2020    Dear Residents and Families, The purpose of this letter is to communicate updates regarding our covid-19 reporting and the actions we continue to take to combat and protect our community.  On December 14 we informed you that there were 3 residents who tested presumptive positive utilizing the POC rapid test. All 3 residents were swabbed a second time utilizing the PCR test. Results were obtained and 2 of the 3 residents were confirmed positive for Covid. These residents reside on our B2 unit. All residents are doing well, and their families were notified. Today, following POC rapid testing on the B2 unit, we identified one resident having presumptive positive results. This resident room will remain on transmission-based precautions while the remaining rooms on this unit will come off isolation precautions on Monday, 12/21. We will notify the families on B2 when precautions are lifted, and visitation may resume. Early last week we lifted transmissio
  December 14, 2020    Dear Residents and Families, The purpose of this letter is to communicate updates regarding our covid-19 reporting and the actions we continue to take to combat and protect our community.  On our December 8 update we informed you that we had 5 presumptive positive residents and we were waiting for their PCR test to confirm or deny the rapid positive test. The results took an extended period of time to receive and all 5 presumptive positives were confirmed as positive for Covid. This delay in second results did not change our original course of action, treatment, or residents’ time under transmission-based precautions. All 5 residents are doing very well. Between the end of last week and this weekend, we have identified an additional 3 residents who tested presumptive positive utilizing the POC rapid test. All 3 residents were swabbed a second time utilizing the PCR test and these PCR tests have been sent to our epidemiology lab for confirmation. Th
