Dear Residents, Associates, Families, and Friends,
As we continue our pooled Saliva Testing, we had two of our pools come back positive for COVID-19. With this news, we isolated the residents in the pool and followed up with the individual PCR swab testing. We have identified one Resident and one Associate in our Assisted Living that have tested positive. The Resident is asymptomatic and is isolating in the apartment with full precautions in place. The Associate is isolating at home. We have completed our contact tracing and notified anyone that may have had prolonged contact with either of these individuals
As a follow up, we identified a 2nd resident that also tested positive. This resident has been isolating since the original pools came back positive. All of the other follow up PCR tests came back negative.
We continue to move forward with our pooled testing and will also do individual tests where it is appropriate.
With numbers in Orange County starting to creep back up, we do ask that everyone do their best to protect themselves and others. Please continue to wear masks, social distance, and wash your hands.
We will continue to provide updates when we have more information to share.
Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
Interim Executive Director
