We are seeing a rise in positive COVID-19 cases as a nation and specifically in Milwaukee County due to the very contagious COVID-19 Delta variant. During the past week, four employees and six fully vaccinated residents tested positive for COVID-19. All residents who tested positive reside in our North Residence Memory Care. All other Memory Care residents were tested and the tests were negative. Those who tested positive are being moved to our Skilled Nursing Health Center to be closely monitored for symptoms.
The Milwaukee County positivity rate for COVID19 has surpassed 10%. This means that all non-vaccinated staff will be required to test twice per week.
We are asking for your diligence in following the CDC guidelines and recommendations below:
When leaving our community, we encourage you to follow the recommended CDC precautions; wear a mask, avoid crowds, social distance and wash your hands frequently.
Thank you for your patience and support throughout this process.
