Family Communication- November 23, 2020

Since the last Family Communication, seven more Residents have fully recovered and will be moved out of the COVID Isolation Unit (RS2) by the end of the day today (November 23rd).  We are saddened to report that we have experienced the loss of another COVID positive Resident.  This is the third death, of a person who has contracted the virus at Fairhaven, since our outbreak began. It is very difficult to lose a Resident at any time; during a pandemic it is even more difficult for families and staff.  I am in awe of the strength that staff have. To hear this news, and then continue to do their work, at such a high level, is remarkable. By the end of the day today (November 23rd), this will leave a total of six active COVID-19 Resident cases.

There have been no additional positive cases added.

One staff member will be fully recovered tomorrow morning and will be returning to work, which will decrease the number of active staff cases to two.  Staff are fully aware that the outbreak is not over and are as determined as ever to finish off the virus as soon as possible.

Family Communication- November 20, 2020

As of 4:30pm today, we have thirteen active cases. All were Residents of Westview 2 (WV2) before being transferred to the isolation area on Riverside 2 (RS2). There are no active or resolved cases that originated in another area of the Home.

We received our outstanding swab results this morning; one Resident of WV2 tested positive and will be transferred to our COVID unit. Two Resident case of COVID-19 were resolved, and they will be moved out of isolation. All Residents on the floor, where the positive cases began, remain isolated in an effort to stop the movement of the coronavirus.

There have been no additional deaths in the past seven days; we are mourning the loss of two Residents in total.

Currently there are three active staff cases of COVID-19. One case was resolved today.

Please continue to keep our Residents and staff in your thoughts.

Family Communication- November 20, 2020

As of 11:30am today (November 18th), we continue to have four staff who have tested positive for COVID (with one being resolved tomorrow if they continue to have no symptoms).

With respect to Residents, we have one person whose case has resolved but, unfortunately, one other case was confirmed late last night (originally from Westview 2). Residents have been isolating in their rooms so there is a high likelihood that this case was linked to exposure to asymptomatic individuals on WV2 that since tested positive.

Total Resident cases remain at fourteen. There are several Residents who, again, if they remain without symptoms, will be resolving during the rest of this week.

Please keep our Home in your thoughts.
