COVID-19 Status Update

Since we last spoke, we have had no confirmation of a COVID+ resident. We are continuing to follow public health guidance and policies for infection control. In accordance with Public Health, we still requiring all staff and visitors in patient areas to wear a N-95 respirator and eye protection/face shield due to the high positivity rate in Ventura County (over 12%).

COVID-19 Status Update

We wanted to keep you updated regarding the current COVID situation in the facility. It has been over a week since our last COVID+ staff member or resident. All COVID+ residents or staff members are fully recovered and are doing well. We remain to have one COVID+ resident in our designated red zone who will be cleared to return to the green zone by the end of the week.

COVID-19 Status Update

We are appreciative of your continued thoughts, prayer and support. We want to assure you that the current situation is much different than in years past: we have infection control best practices as it relates specifically to the virus, 90%+ of our staff and residents have been fully vaccinated, PPE and other necessary equipment is readily available etc. We will continue to notify you as updates become available.

At this point, we have 25 residents in the red zone who are doing well with mild to no symptoms and 19 positive staff members, the majority of whom are asymptomatic and have returned to work in the red zone.

COVID-19 Exposure

Unfortunately we’ve had a staff member test COVID+ this morning.  We are working with Public Health to take the appropriate actions related to response testing and quarantining.  If you did not receive a phone call specifically stating that your family member or loved one was exposed to the COVID+ resident then your family member or loved one was not exposed.

COVID-19 Outbreak Update

I am happy to inform you all that Camarillo Healthcare Center is officially out of “outbreak”. In light of this, we are getting back to communal dining, rehab in the gym, use of common spaces, communal activities, and visitation! Having said this, we are still working closely with our local health department and these guidelines can change at any time. Our current county positivity rates are declining each week, so we anticipate that this trend will continue help keep another outbreak at bay. Our staff will continue to be tested at least once per week until the foreseeable future.
