Residents, Families and Partners,
At Amarsi Assisted Living, we’re committed to keeping you up-to-date and informed, especially during the turbulent times caused by COVID-19.
We are writing to inform you that one of our residents has been diagnosed positive with COVID-19. The resident first displayed symptoms on March 31, 2020 and was immediately isolated. The resident has since been transferred to the hospital, where the resident was tested for COVID-19. The test came back positive. The resident is stable and may be transferred back to our community, if appropriate, to recover in isolation.
We continue to take urgent action to minimize the possible exposure associated with this virus, and all of the interventions referenced in our previous communication remain in place. Our staff continue to monitor residents for signs and symptoms as or any other changes in condition on a regular basis. Our staff continue to maintain infection control measures when interacting with our residents. We conduct hourly cleanings. Staff members are assigned to limited areas of the building to minimize the risk that any infection could spread. In addition to these steps, we have contacted the local health department and they have confirmed that we are taking all actions recommended with this new diagnosis.
As always, we will notify residents’ primary physicians and designated family members of any changes in their loved one’s condition, whether potentially related to COVID-19 or not.
Please reach out with questions, concerns, or requests for assistance. We will keep you updated as additional information becomes available.
