Dear Residents, Family Members and Staff:
Good afternoon. I write to share with you that the COVID virus is still living in our community. I was notified today that a staff member who works at Blossom Place, received a positive at the doctor’s office.
To follow the protocols that are still required for long term care facilities, residents and staff will be tested, and family members have been informed of this development.
Due to this outbreak, (one positive case defines an outbreak) staff and residents will be provided masks. Three tests will be conducted to ensure no further positive test results are received.
Continued steps Edenton will take are as follows:
- Any Resident, independent living or assisted living who tests positive for covid will be isolated for 10 days in their rooms/apartments. Wearing of a mask may be re-implemented.
- Staff and Residents can decide if and when they want to wear a mask, except when there is an outbreak of one case.
- Guest meals are still NOT permitted in the AL dining rooms due to space limitations. If you wish to dine with your AL Resident, please call us to make arrangements to dine in the main dining room or private conference room.
- Any Resident who tests positive for the virus may still receive visitors who wear the proper PPE (supplies). Residents must be isolated for a minimum of 10 days or until the symptoms go away.
Thank you for your continued understanding and patience as we continue to navigate the impact of Covid – 19.
