Dear Family and Friends,
This update is short and sweet because have had another good week! Residents tested negative for a second straight week! We are still waiting on staff results for this week. The assisted living continues to be COVID-19 free and we will be monitoring them during these early stages of Essential Caregiver visits. As Jones-Harrison starts allowing essential visitors the risk of COVID-19 can increase, we will stay vigilant. Since we are still working for a longer period of negatives on the care center side, essential caregiver visits are not allowed at this time.
The first week of outdoor visits in the courtyard have gone quite well; residents and family members are visiting masked across a table now – one step closer to ‘normal’. The scheduling system has been updated for longer visits so please read below as understand how you can schedule 30-minute outdoor visits with your loved one!
All indications tell us this is a marathon, not a sprint. Jones-Harrison is continuing to procure PPE for staff, and follow CDC, CMS, and state guidelines on infection control. The knowledge we have today is different than when we started, and we are working daily with continued changing information. Your ongoing support and prayers are essential to residents and staff! Thank you for everything you have done!
Annette Greely, President/CEO
