Dear Maristhill Residents and Families,
We would like to update you on the status of Covid-19 at Maristhill. We received notification today that a housekeeper from our contracted service company tested positive for Covid-19. The housekeeper is asymptomatic and will not be working until she fulfills the testing requirements set forth by the CDC and Department of Public Health. None of our residents have exhibited any signs or symptoms of Covid-19 at this time. We have been in contact with the Department of Public Health, and we are following their guidance on testing our staff and residents. Please note that all of our staff and residents (except one) have been vaccinated and many have received their booster dose of the vaccine.
We will not be stopping visitations to the facility. However, we would ask everyone visiting to exercise caution regarding your visit. If, you do not feel well or you have been in contact with anyone who has Covid or the Flu, please postpone your visit. We can perform a BinaxRapid test to anyone who wishes to receive one. Also, we can provide a vaccination or a booster vaccine dose upon request. Please, reach out to Shirly Yellamaty, ADON to make those arrangements.
If, any further test results come back positive we will contact you as soon as we are able too.
Thank you all for your support. If you have any questions, please let me know.
