Protecting the well-being of our residents and staff has been our top priority as the COVID-19 epidemic has spread across the world. Our prompt efforts have been a major factor in keeping our community secure, including:
- Restricting visitors and non-essential staff
- Limiting resident interactions
- Following CDC, state, and local guidelines
Sadly, we have learned that a staff member has tested positive for COVID-19.
We are actively engaged in procedures to suppress further spread of this illness, including active infection-control surveillance and reaching out and monitoring all residents for signs and symptoms of a change of condition. We did not have any resident exposure or contact in this case. We have also completed the contact tracing process, with no additional positive cases identified.
In addition to these supplementary measures, all previous restrictions remain in place to protect our residents and staff. We are acutely aware of the severity of this illness, and will continue to do everything in our power to keep our residents and staff safe during this time.
Please direct any questions you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org, and include URC in the subject line.
