Dear Terraces families and friends-
As you know, we are testing staff every Monday and Tuesday, and testing residents every Thursday. Resident results from last Thursday have yet to come in, but since my last update on 12/29, two staff have tested positive. One is in the maintenance department and the other in dining.
Covid At A Glance – The Terraces At Park Marino
|New Positives/ Since Last Update (12/29 5:00 pm)||0||2|
|Resolved Positives Cases||3||3|
The good news is that 3 positive residents and 3 positive staff have been resolved without serious symptoms and are now off quarantine and isolation.
On another note, we have some more clarification on how the vaccine will be distributed to the community.
Once we have a scheduled date (which we don’t yet), the pharmacy will come for three vaccination dates. The first visit will be to administer the first dose for 50% of staff and residents who want to get vaccinated (Group 1). The second visit will be to administer the second dose to Group 1 and the first dose to the other 50% of staff and residents who want to get tested (Group 2). Finally, the third visit will be to administer the second dose to Group 2.
As you would expect, we continue to follow strict guidelines and common sense to try to limit the spread; full PPE for all employees entering residents’ apartments, changing of PPE before moving on, sanitizing of all surfaces and departments hourly, etc.
Please let me know if you have questions or if there’s anything we can do.
