Yesterday, we received notification that one additional Residential Living resident tested positive for COVID-19.
A residential living resident— who resides in a cottage—was tested on December 1 and test results were received December 3. The resident began self-quarantining on November 28. We believe that the exposure risk to residents and team members in this case is low.
Our Resident Services Team is communicating with this individual daily and checking on their recovery status. Please be assured, that we are trained and well-equipped to safely care for this resident, while minimizing the risk of the spread of COVID-19 to other individuals.
We are proceeding per guidance by the PA Department of Human Services and PA Department of Health to conduct ‘Outbreak Testing’ and ‘Routine Testing’ on residents and team members within Meadows Health Care Center and Lakeview Personal Care. As COVID-19 testing progresses, these tests may result in additional COVID-19 positive cases.
