COVID-19 Update: Results from Mandatory Staff Testing: August 31, 2020
Hello Eliza Bryant Village Family & Friends,
Eliza Bryant Village and other long-term care providers are now required to provide all-staff COVID-19 testing every two weeks. We will keep updating this blog post as we learn of the test results. We hope that this will help you remain informed and feel more comfortable as we navigate the changes that COVID-19 continues to impose on us all.
We understand that this staff testing may cause anxiety, but please, rest assured that if your family member came in contact with one of our team members who tested positive for COVID-19, you will receive a phone call from our nursing team.
- The National Guard conducted our first round of mandatory testing on Thursday, July 30, 2020. This testing included contract workers such as Hospice providers, our physical therapy team, and more essential workers who work with us to keep our residents safe and healthy. The results of this first round of testing on July 30, where 145 tests were completed, are as follows: Three staff members have been confirmed with COVID-19 positive tests.
- Eliza Bryant Village staff provided 147 COVID-19 tests on August 17, 2020, and no staff tested positive for COVID-19. One staff tested positive for COVID-19 from an outside testing organization and has not returned to work since August 13th.
