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.
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.
We are glad to inform you that our facility’s “outbreak” status has officially been cleared by the Ventura County Public Health Office and the California Department of Public Health Licensing Division. We are thankful for our front line staff and you for weathering the storm of this latest Omicron surge. We’re also happy to announce the following updates to our visitation guidelines…
