This chart was done by AHCA, a national association of Senior Health Care. What it shows is the dramatic decline of cases in both staff and resident infections in Nursing Homes of the COVID-19 virus. Our programs are working. We are winning the war against this virus. We (collectively) still have some work to do – VACCINATION, and continuing to adhere to CDC Infection Control Protocols to reduce the spread of the virus, but we are winning. This is good news for all of us. It has been a hard road for all us – we have lost so many from this virus – friends, family members, co-workers and residents, but we are beginning to “see the light” from this chart.
As we discussed in previous monthly updates the opening and restricting of access to our facility will be very fluid. One positive case noted in our testing protocols and restrictions for a period of time are required to ensure further spread. We are sure everyone recognizes these safety precautions and we are continuing to ask for your patience during these times.
Please remember- the CDC has not changed their recommendations and guidance to containing this virus – MASKING- SOCIAL DISTANCING- HAND WASHING- VACCINATION are still the frontline barriers between this virus and us.
