- 17 residents and 8 staff positive for COVID
- All units still allowing visitation under CMS guidance
Through our testing protocols and procedures, 17 residents of the Dalton Place building tested positive for COVID-19. These residents are from the East 1 and East 2 units and one resident on West 2. Each of the families of these residents have been contacted and made aware of their positive test results. These residents have been isolated and will remain so until the virus has past and negative test results are achieved. Staff caring for these residents are following CMS and CDC protocols in an effort to help prevent any cross contamination. No residents in the Hamilton Terrace building have tested positive or shown signs or symptoms. We also have 8 staff who have tested positive for Covid-19 and they are not allowed to return to work until they are Covid-19 negative.
Be aware that the affected units are placed under an observation period which includes ongoing testing of all staff and all residents. Visitation is still allowed to continue as long as each visitor follows infection control protocols and no further outbreak occurs.
We encourage all visitors to join our staff in following infection control protocols including wearing masks and sanitizing hands. Your keeping socially distanced as much as possible during your visit is highly encouraged as well.
If you have any questions concerning these matters, you can contact the Unit Manager or Social Worker. You can reach us using our number 423-490-1599.
Thank you for allowing us to care for you and/or a loved one of yours who is here at Standifer Place.
