Update from Administrator – November 19, 2020

Dear Friends and families,

We continue to test all of our staff on a weekly basis. Our staff continue to test negative. Because our staff continue to test negative, our local Bristol-Burlington Health District has allowed us to open our beauty salon. We talked to Natalie and she will be here next week.

As you know, 4 weeks ago we stopped testing the residents weekly by order of CT-DPH. As the state’s positivity rate continues to climb, during the month of December 1 – 10. The state wants all residents in all nursing tested for COVOD 19. This will find any resident that has covid 19 without any symptoms. As of yesterday, 119 nursing homes in the state have residents and or staff tested positive and are considered in an outbreak.

I am not sure what day our residents will get tested but it will be during that time frame.

Thank you and I will keep you updated on future changes.
