Dear Residents, Families, Associates, and Friends of The Fountains;
After 10 months of having no residents test positive for COVID-19, we currently have eight. These residents are being cared for both inside and outside the community. The community is on a 14 day shut down to protect our residents and associates. We are following CDC guidelines, continue to monitor the health of all residents and associates daily and are in contact with the health department.
We currently have two associate in Assisted Living and one associate in Housekeeping that have tested positive. Two of these three should return this week.
The community continues to complete twice weekly PCR mouth swab tests for all residents and associates. This frequent test strategy has helped to identify positive cases quickly. Most of the cases we have are asymptomatic, so without this testing frequency the virus would have likely spread.
The Fountains chose CVS Pharmacy using the Pfizer vaccine for our clinic. We have received the dates for our vaccination clinic. Our community vaccination clinics will be as follows:
The Fountains not only won The Florida Today’s “BEST OF BREVARD” award, but we also won the READERS’ CHOICE award from Hometown News for 2020!
Thank you for your continued support as we navigate through these unusual circumstances together.
