Dear Maristhill Residents and Families,
I wish to inform you that we had healthcare provider test positive for Covid-19. This healthcare provider was in our facility prior to their knowledge that they tested positive for Covid-19. The healthcare provider was vaccinated and is isolating for 14 days. We have been informed that this person is not showing any signs or symptoms of Covid-19.
We are testing all staff and resident twice during the next seven days and then once the following week so that we can monitor the status of all staff and residents at Maristhill. We will continue to update you as we test our staff and residents.
We regret to inform you that DPH has instructed us to suspend visitation to our units until our testing protocol is completed. Also, we will suspend communal dining and group activities during this time frame. Compassionate visits will continue under DPH guidance of wearing full PPE. These visits will be arranged on as needed basis by the nursing and social service department.
Thank you all for your support. If you have any questions, please let me know.
