Dear Residents, Families, and Associates of Byron Park,
During our ongoing weekly testing, we identified one asymptomatic Independent Living resident positive for COVID-19. Thankfully, the resident is doing well and will be isolating in their apartment.
The health authorities such as Contra Costa Public Health and Community Care Licensing have been notified. Currently, we have no other known cases or symptomatic associates or residents and will continue weekly testing of all residents and associates to identify any new cases, if any promptly.
As of today, our county positivity rate is 3.3% (7-day average) and with the holidays in full swing we may see an increase in positive cases in our County. This reinforces the importance of all associates, providers, and residents to participate in our weekly testing and getting the booster when appropriate. It is also just as important for our families to take advantage of the individual PCR testing offered at Byron Park. This allows for safe interactions between you and your loved ones, especially when an essential outing needs to occur. We know that early detection through our testing programs, along with social distancing, proper mask use, hand hygiene, and ongoing health monitoring, we can provide an excellent line of defense in the fight against Covid-19.
We will continue to focus on innovative, safe, and secure ways to provide an engaging lifestyle while actively monitoring the ever-changing COVID19 pandemic. We thank you for your commitment, confidence, and partnership during this difficult holiday season. If you have questions, comments, or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out.
