COVID UPDATE – January 10, 2022

Since our last communication, we have had two additional Assisted Living residents test positive on rapid tests. They are in isolation and cooperating with the team and the Health Department.

We PCR tested all staff AND residents at Friendship Towers and the Healthcare Center today, Monday, 01/10/2022, following CDC guidelines for safe infection prevention protocol.

To set expectations, we hope that we will have results soon, but in reality, we do no anticipate that we will have results tonight.

During this time, if anyone is having signs or symptoms or is in isolation, we will be happy to deliver meals to apartments to ensure the safety of the residents. Please do not go to the dining room if you are feeling sick.
