By Angela Rizzo | June 2, 2021

June 2, 2021 Dear residents and families, Today we learned that a test completed last week, has come back positive. The individual is an employee who works in Health Care Dining. Unfortunately, this is going to require us to close the Health Care Center to indoor in-person visitation once again. We will be able to host window visits, outdoor in-person visits and electronic visits. Please schedule your visit through our website or by calling Health Care life enrichment. End of Life and other compassionate care visits may continue as per our guidelines. This exposure will cause us to continue outbreak testing where all employees and residents will be tested weekly. We will be able to end outbreak precautions and open…

Campus Wide Update as of 5.21.2021

By Angela Rizzo | May 21, 2021

  May 21, 2021 Dear Residents and Families, This week we have some positive and some frustrating news to share. In the Health Care Center (HCC) we have identified no new cases of COVID, with a few test results still pending.

(Update as of 2:00 p.m. on May 21, all results have been received and Health Care is back open to visitors.) We completed our testing early enough in the week that we had expected the results no later than yesterday, however that has not occurred. We…

Campus Wide Update as of 5.7.2021 – Important Health Care Update

By Angela Rizzo | May 7, 2021

May 7, 2021 Dear Residents and Families, As you may already know, we have identified one positive Health Care Dining staff member through routine testing. The staff member is self-isolating, and it is not believed that the individual caused any other direct exposures on our campus. Nevertheless, our guidance defines this as an outbreak, and this requires us to stop all routine in-person visitation to the Health Care Center. We must test all Health Care residents and all staff and record 14 days with no new cases before we can once again reopen to routine visits. Based on this guidance, the earliest we will be able to allow Health Care in person visitation will be May 20, assuming no new…

Campus Wide Update as of April 21, 2021

By Angela Rizzo | April 21, 2021

April 21, 2021 Dear Residents and Families, It has been wonderful having everyone here to visit as we have been allowed. It really feels like we have taken a big step towards getting back to “normal”. And yet cases are on the rise and we need to continue to protect everyone as much as we can. This week we learned that one employee who mainly works in Independent Living is positive and several other employees from around the campus have been exposed. All employees are self-isolating as appropriate for their situation. The only known exposure situations that have happened on our campus involved people who have been vaccinated and were masked during the encounters. We are thankful that our precautions…

April 1, 2021 Dear Residents and Families, I hope this letter finds you well. We are extremely pleased to have welcomed back visitors to our Health Care and Personal Care Centers and more fully in our Independent Living areas. We know that it greatly benefits the well-being of our residents, families, and staff, to again be able to spend time with one another. While being open to visitors, Covid still remains a threat. Covid cases in the surrounding area are climbing from their low in mid-March and as such we continue to urge all visitors to use precautions.

Visitation Update as of March 15, 2021

By Angela Rizzo | March 15, 2021

March 11, 2021 Dear Families, Loved Ones, and Initial Contacts of the Health and Personal Care Centers: We are thrilled to announce that the most recent CMS guidance has allowed our Health and Personal Care Centers to expand indoor visitation. Visitors are no longer required to book visits ahead of time, are not restricted to designated times and dates, and are not restricted to specific areas. However, the memory care units, skilled nursing center and Personal Care Center must continue to be handled with great care to ensure that every resident, regardless of diagnosis and ability, is safe from communicable diseases. When visiting a resident, please stay in the resident’s room or move to a private space away from other…

Campus Wide COVID19 Update as of March 5, 2021

By Angela Rizzo | March 5, 2021

  March 5, 2021 Dear Laurel View Village Residents and Families, I am pleased to say that we have another week with very little COVID news to report. We have identified no new cases on our campus. We have been informed of one employee who has been infected off campus. The employee was not on our campus during their infectious period, which has allowed us to stay on track in our reopening plans for dining, visitation, and other activities. This is a good reminder that it is still important to practice proper infection control. We have confirmed the Giant Eagle clinic for Monday March 8 and have notified the residents who are scheduled to receive their vaccine. Thompson’s Pharmacy will…

Campus Wide Update Regarding COVID19 as of February 26, 2021

By Angela Rizzo | February 26, 2021

February 25, 2021 Dear Laurel View Village Residents and Families, We continue to monitor staff and residents for signs and symptoms of COVID, and thankfully we have no infections of residents or staff currently. We are scheduled to test staff monthly, sooner if symptoms or new infections are identified. Health Care and Personal Care have been able to loosen restrictions and consider most residents negative and unexposed to COVID. As such we have been able to stop wearing gowns for routine resident interactions. New residents admitted to Health Care, Personal Care or Independent Living still must quarantine for 14 days to rule out infections and limit spread. The Health Care and Personal Care Centers have progressed in their reopening phases.…
