McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update
Wednesday, December 22, 2021
This is a second McCormick Care Group COVID-19 Update for Wednesday, December 22, 2021.
It is with deep regret that we provide this latest update. The home has received notification of a second resident testing positive in Memory Lane. At this time, there are no other residents in Memory Lane who are currently showing signs or symptoms of COVID-19, and they will be continued to be monitored closely.
As a result of this new case, the retesting of all residents and staff in Memory Lane will now occur on December 27, 2021. Unfortunately, this is an evolving situation. If we have additional cases, the cycle will extend. An update will be provided as soon as the results from the resident PCR testing today are known.
As a reminder, fully vaccinated residents who reside in non-outbreak home areas are permitted to leave the home for social outings. While these outside visits are permitted, we ask that you use extreme caution as infection cases climb in our community. If residents go on an outing, they must undergo a rapid test plus a PCR test on Day 3 following the outing and a second PCR test on Day 7.
