- Current total of 1 positive resident and 3 staff with COVID
We currently have 1 resident and 3 staff members who are positive for Covid-19. The resident is from the 500 unit of the Hamilton Terrace building. The family of the resident has been contacted and made aware of the positive test result. The resident will remain under isolation until the virus has past and negative test results are achieved. Staff caring for the resident are following CMS and CDC protocols in an effort to help prevent any cross contamination.
The COVID-19 positive staff members will remain out of work until they have completed the required protocols to be safe to return to work.
With the low rate of cases, we have re-opened Group Activities in both buildings at this time.
Be aware that the 500 unit is 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.
