To the editor:
Dear residents, family, and friends of CCNH:
One resident has tested positive for COVID-19 this afternoon (Tuesday). We have zero staff COVID-19 cases.
We have been testing all unvaccinated staff weekly for the last few weeks and monthly before that.
All residents and staff, vaccinated and unvaccinated, will be tested before the end of the day tomorrow (Wednesday).
At this time, all social visits and group activities have been canceled. Should we have no new cases of COVID-19 after our initial testing results are received, we will be able resume normal activities for the unaffected unit(s).
Until further notice, all staff and visitors (compassionate care visits only at this time) will be wearing N95 masks and eye protection when in facility.
