We are writing to provide you additional updates regarding COVID-19, or Coronavirus, and our continued preventive actions.
A letter is being mailed today to notify you that 3 residents have tested positive for COVID-19 as of today, July 5, 2020. After an extensive investigation including contact tracing, it was determined the staff member acquired the virus outside of the facility and the likelihood of her infecting residents is nominal.
We have coordinated all COVID-19 testing with our local health department and have received 1/4 of the test results back with 3 residents testing positive for COVID-19 as of July 5, 2020. The families of these residents have already received a phone call and we are in the process of notifying family of our other residents to let them know what is going on and the precaution measures we are taking to ensure that their loved ones are well cared for.
The safety of our residents and families continues to be our top priority and we are doing all we can to protect those we serve. The aggressive infection control measures implemented continue to be our top priority and we appreciate everyone's support during this difficult time.
Please note, if a positive test result is produced from the facility-wide testing, phone calls will be made to all resident families, guardians, and powers of attorney.
In the meantime, please feel free to contact Cashmere Care Center for any additional information from 9am - 4pm.
