10 new cases of COVID-19 in Adrian Manor

This is Sheila Wackerman from Adrian Manor. I have to inform you that we have had ten more residents test positive for COVID and five staff members over this holiday weekend. We have now enlarged our positive unit to include the entire 200 hall. 

We have notified those resident’s families that have been involved in the moving and notified the families of the positive residents. All residents are still isolated to their rooms. We will be testing staff on Tuesday and Thursdays, the residents will be retested again Wednesday. But we will be monitoring all residents closely for signs or symptoms. 

And if we see any resident starting to show any signs and symptoms we will test them at that time. This extends our isolation time again. We will have to go through at least 2 rounds of testing until we get 2 consecutive rounds with everyone being negative. I did send out the information on the vaccine and the consent form.

The vaccination clinic is scheduled for January 12th, but due to the increase in positive residents may be postponed to a later date. I will keep you informed of any changes. My nurses back in the positive unit are updating the number one emergency contact on record daily. But, if there is a change in condition they will contact the emergency person immediately. 

I am asking you to forward the information given to you on the daily basis to the other members of the family, so that we are not taking our nurses away from the direct care the residents need. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
