01-14-2021: VISITATION PLANS UPDATE
COVID-19 positive tests in facility and community halting visitation
While a second outbreak that occurred in November and early December has now resolved, we still are experiencing a small number of cases among staff and residents. As of this update we have a total of 7 active cases, 4 of those are residents and 3 are staff. All residents and families have already been notified and the residents are being properly quarantined on our COVID-19 unit and receiving care. The staff who are active are not working until they complete their quarantine away from work. They must test negative before returning to work.
Because of these cases within our facility and the positivity rate in the community still very high at 23.8% (Hamilton County), we are still not providing indoor or outdoor visitation at this time except in End of Life and Compassionate Care situations as defined in the previous update below. Until new cases in our facility cease and the positivity rate turns below 10% in the community, we are certain it is best to temporarily restrict visitation.
