We are very thankful that we continue to have no new COVID positive cases for residents or staff. In Arizona there has been a 20% increase in the amount of people testing positive over the last week alone. We have to remain diligent in our preventative measures to ensure the safety of all of our residents.
We appreciate your cooperation and support during these unprecedented times. As we have expressed in all of our updates to you, we will follow the lead of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and state/local health department guidelines.
This update will focus on some positive things that have happened in the past week. We are happy to announce there have been no new positive cases for resident or for employees. For those residents diagnosed as COVID positive that remain in our care, none have shown any negative health related signs or symptoms of the virus.
