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.

Vaccine Celebration

Protected together! With the recent introduction of the COVID-19 Vaccines, resident and staff covid cases have dropped by over 50%. Our team is honored to do our part in helping to end this year long pandemic. #VaccinesWork #IVax2Protect

COVID-19 Family Communication

We are making headway with all of the challenges surrounding our outbreak! Thank you all for your support and understanding, especially all of the needed room changes! Really, we could not have the success without it. Your loved ones have been wonderful despite the difficulties. I have not seen so many genuine smiles (even under the masks) in my nearly three years working here! So far, we are headed in the anticipated direction, having converted most all residents into the “GREEN” zone. This means that they are now considered “COVID-recovered” and are no longer under the same quarantined restrictions as before.

COVID-19 Outbreak Update

This weeks’ testing results impacted the facility more than it has in the past. Our “RED” or COVID unit has needed to expand to encompass all of station 3 to accommodate the newly COVID + residents. Each of those resident families were contacted as their results came in. Besides many room changes, the only difference to the unit from last week is its size. Still there are dedicated staff, breakroom, nursing station, computers, etc for that unit. There is no cross-over from the RED unit to the rest of the building.

COVID-19 Outbreak Update

With 2020 in the rear-view we were excited to have made it almost the entire year without a COVID outbreak; a statistic entirely unmatched in Ventura County! As you know, we have been battling the last 4 weeks with several of our staff who have tested positive. After four rounds of testing all staff and your loved ones, we were successful with having no sign of facility-based transmission. This weeks’ testing has gone the other direction, unfortunately. There are now several residents who have tested positive while no new cases amongst the staff.

Preserving Our Resident’s Right to Vote

We want to express our continued gratitude for your ongoing support as we navigate through the COVID-19 environment. Today, however, we write to you about the upcoming election and the Facility’s commitment to honoring, promoting and preserving a resident’s right to vote. We support the rights of our residents to exercise these rights without interference, discrimination or reprisal, and are taking action to ensure that those residents who wish to vote will be able to do so (whether in person or by mail).

Updated Visitation Information

In light of the visitation guidelines given by Ventura County Health Department, we wanted to provide you all with a way to visit your loved one in person. Together as a team, and in conjunction with the county guidance, we have created an outline that enables us to have an in person visit outside the facility…

Employee COVID-19 Diagnosis

We had one of our employees test results show positive for COVID-19. This individual did not have any direct contact with your loved one and they are at home, following the directed self-quarantine instructions as outlined by Ventura County Public Health (VCPH).
