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.
Since our last communication, we have had no reported positive cases amongst our staff here at Mesa Springs. However, we have learned that one Community resident has tested positive for the virus. When making the report, the resident stated that they had experienced no signs and symptoms of the virus and had been tested as a precaution.
We would like to update you on how things are going at Mesa Spring as it relates to COVID-19, especially given the spike in positive cases of the virus in Abilene, Texas. We are happy to report, we continue to have no staff with a positive diagnosis of COVID-19, or showing signs or symptoms of illness. However, we learned yesterday that the skilled nursing facility that shares a campus with us has COVID-19 positive test results for 3 staff members including one in dietary.
