Dear Residents, Associates, Friends, and Families of Magnolia Glen:
As you know, we have established on ongoing COVID-19 testing program that we believe is the most innovative in the country. Collaborating with our lab partners, we have developed an approach that is designed to detect COVID-19 quickly to minimize the potential exposure to others by conducting ongoing Pooled Saliva PCR Testing.
Our most recent testing occurred on Monday, November 23, 2020. We received the test results this evening from Monday’s testing and unfortunately, we have 2 pools with positive COVID-19. The first pool is associated with our vendor partners and the second pool is associated with our assisted living residents. We have scheduled individual esophageal PCR testing on Wednesday morning for everyone associated with the impacted pools. Once we receive the results from the individual esophageal PCR tests, we will quickly respond to the positive individuals to minimize community exposure as well as continue our commitment of transparency in communicating the results.
As the prevalence of COVID-19 in North Carolina continues to soar, it is important to remain diligent in practicing proper hand hygiene, social distancing, and proper facemask use in and around Magnolia Glen. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and focus on our safety protocols.
