We believe many of you have heard the Texas Governor’s announcement that he is lifting COVID related restrictions throughout the state as of Wednesday, March 10. We are sure you all have questions about how this impacts the possible “re-opening” of our Communities.
In the Governor’s Executive Order GA-34, it states that senior living facilities should continue to follow guidance from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) regarding any visitation and should continue to follow infection control policies and practices issued by HHSC.
We wanted to let you know the actions we are taking at Mesa Springs Independent Living to protect our residents. We are currently experiencing (rolling power outages of more than 18 hours at a time, and we have had some of our pipes freeze and burst and delayed food vendor deliveries). We remain without power today except for about two hours a day.
I am so sorry to have to share with you that we have a resident with COVID-19. This resident tested positive during the night on December 10, 2020 after attending the Christmas party. They are an active, engaged resident at Mesa Springs attending meals daily in the dining room. Due to the large number of people directly exposed, we have to consider that staff and residents have all been exposed. Effective immediately we have to go back into lockdown.
