I am writing to let you know an individual contracted to provide services to residents within our community has tested positive for COVID. This individual and the residents the contractor served in our dining room are currently isolating until a return date can be determined following local health department and CDC guidance. To date, we have no residents or staff members that have tested positive for the virus.
We appreciate your cooperation and support during these unprecedented times. Social distancing and other virus-related restrictions have been difficult for all of us during this pandemic. Some of you may be aware that Texas is beginning to move forward to “reopen” our senior living facilities.
It has come to our attention that there was a recent newspaper article about an increase in COVID-19 cases at the skilled nursing facility that shares a campus with us. As you are all aware from our earlier communication in July when there were some positive staff cases at the skilled nursing facility, we do not share any common areas or buildings with the skilled nursing.
