To our dear families and dedicated staff:
Today we started ramping up our COVID testing because of the 100 testing swabs provided by Accurate
Diagnostics. We know that this is necessary in order to really be able to provide appropriate treatment
and cohort our residents in the proper groups. After thorough research we contracted with them and
were able to secure the above-mentioned results tests with considerable faster turnaround time than
what we were previously using.
That being said we know that this will result in higher numbers of positive cases as there probably are
quite a few residents and staff that are positive without symptoms. In our effort to be as transparent as
possible we will be updating you all with the numbers. Please keep in mind that the increase in positive
cases is not seen as failure to prevent spread but a better ability to conclusively identify cases in order to
improve our ability to isolate those that need isolating, while attempting to prevent spread to those who
are currently not affected.
