Dear Personal Care Employees:
We are writing to let you know that we were notified that a Canterbury Court employee on the second floor tested positive for COVID-19. They have had two employees that tested positive last week as well. As a precautionary measure all residents on the second floor are being tested, as well as all employees. Moving forward all staff working on their healthcare floors will be tested twice a week. Personal Care employees who work at Canterbury Court can be included in this testing. No Personal Care employees or clients were exposed.
I did not expect to be sending out a COVID-19 update seven months after the first one. This pandemic has been hard on the healthcare industry, frontline employees, parents, and our older adults. We continue to ask that you comply with all community policies. Wearing a mask while delivering direct client care is required. You may remove your mask while you are appropriately distanced.
As a reminder, we would like you to turn in any COVID-19 test results that you have. Please email copies of results to me, or text them to us. We will help facilitate testing for anyone who wishes to receive it. Testing is free. If you are traveling please make us aware of the travel so we can discuss testing options.
If you are exposed to COVID-19 reporting it to us is mandatory. It is strongly encouraged that you wear your face mask in public and use precautions when at gatherings and in public. Please continue your diligence in practicing safe physical distancing and proper hand-washing. We appreciate all the efforts that everyone is taking to remain as safe as possible and know that these efforts are making a difference.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
