Hello family & friends of Rosemary Heights,
We are happy to report no residents or staff are displaying any COVID symptoms and we are continuing to monitor staff and residents daily, as well we are continuing with our enhanced sanitization plan.
Unfortunately, we have had to retest a number of staff members today, and are still waiting upon those results and are very optimistic that we will learn of our next steps by tomorrow afternoon. If all results come back in our favor, we have been in touch with Fraser health daily and are hopeful that we will be released of enhanced monitoring in time to resume meal service in the dining room and restart small group activities in assisted living and will restart in person visits by Friday, if all goes well. We need to ensure everyone is healthy before we resume daily activities. We will share the results as soon as we receive them and this will determine our next steps with Fraser Health/Public Health Nurse. We are so very thankful for your patience, we know how very hard this is on the tenants and we do miss them terribly.
At this time and until we hear otherwise, we are still deemed on an enhanced monitoring on the Assisted Living building and must continue with ceasing in person visits, residents remain in their rooms with meals being served via room service and group activities are halted as per Public Health & Fraser Health. We are continuing to monitor staff and residents daily, as well we are continuing with our enhanced sanitization plan. Please know that if your family member tests positive, you will receive an immediate phone call and they will continue these calls daily to keep you updated.
We have learned that the 2nd dose of COVID 19 vaccinations will be administered to all Rosemary Heights residents ONLY on Tues, Feb 23, 2021. Any new admissions that had moved in after Jan 13/2021 will receive their 1st COVID vaccine on that day too.
Sukhjit, our Finance Admin Coordinator is currently working on preparing all of our residents and tenants tax receipts for 2020. They will be in the mail by February 28th 2021.
