Good afternoon everyone,
I am writing to let you know where we stand with the community-wide Covid-19 surveillance testing of all residents and associates.
So far, we have tested 64 residents and all associates (with nine remaining). The test results have come in with all residents reflecting negative results and two associates being positive.
With the average of positive test results in Orange County at 13.2% there was concern about the number of possible positive cases here at Park Terrace. We are currently at 1%.
We have been waiting for our shipment of new test kits and they arrived today so we will resume testing the remaining residents and associates tomorrow.
We are all working very hard and doing all we can to keep Park Terrace as safe an environment as possible. It is with great sadness that I inform you our resident who had tested positive at the hospital last week has passed. Our hearts go out to the family. This is heartbreaking news for all of us, families and associates caring for our residents.
We are keeping all our protocols in place and we thank you for your patience as we move through the process of testing everyone.
