Monterey Seniors Village – May 5, 2020 Update

Test results, from swabs of all residents have come back and ALL results were COVID-negative.

We will continue to assess and closely monitor residents for any new symptoms. We also have Clinical staff at the site helping us doing assessments twice a day.

Swabs have been conducted of all employees and we are awaiting those results.

At this point, the number of affected staff remains at four, all of whom are home and in self-isolation. We have conducted tracing to isolate other staff members they have been in close contact with.

Staff members are assessed at the beginning of their shift and mid-way through their shift, and should any be symptomatic, they will be placed in self-isolation as a matter of course.

Protocols

We are  adhering to a number of strict protocols, including restricting ALL visitors from the premises.

We have increased the deep cleaning and sanitization of the entire community, with additional housekeeping staff in all areas of the building, and enhanced cleaning in high touch areas.

We will continue to act upon the latest advice of public health officials and adapt our operations as necessary and recommended, to reduce the risk of infection and transmission as much as possible.

Communication

 We will be communicating with all families via email on a daily basis along with Facebook posts. Should the condition of any resident change, family will be notified immediately.
