As promised, we wanted to provide you another update. As stated in our previous letter, we continually monitor residents for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and assess employees for signs and symptoms or exposure to the virus. We also stated that when we had first notice of the recent positive employees and residents, we were having some additional residents tested for the virus. We were informed that out of the 8 residents that were tested, 5 have come back as positive for COVID-19. We have five other residents who were tested over the weekend or will be tested in the next day or two and will be isolated pending testing and the receipt of results. Of the 9 now positive individuals, 4 have been sent out of the Community for treatment and the rest remain in the facility under isolation.
I am sure many of you are aware of the significant increase in positive cases in Arizona. In our previous communication, we made you aware of a newly positive employee. We now have a second staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19. We also now have two residents who has tested positive for COVID-19. We have identified several residents that are currently being isolated from other residents who have shown symptoms, have been tested and waiting on results to return.
At Rose Court Assisted Living and Memory Care, we’re committed to keeping you up-to-date and informed, especially during the turbulent times caused by COVID-19. Since our last communication, we have had no new residents test positive for COVID-19.
