Since the first reports of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) were diagnosed in the United States in January, we have been working to help ensure that we are prepared. The Laurel's number one priority is the health and safety of our residents, staff and associates.
We understand there is concern, so we want you to know that we have taken and continue to take appropriate steps to mitigate the risk of exposure:
* Providing staff with the tools needed to monitor residents’ health to help detect possible health issues before symptoms manifest.
*Utilizing the Government PA Health website tracking system to monitor COVID-19 outbreaks.
*Updated and enhanced the cleaning protocols in our facility to address COVID-19.
*Re-educated our staff on the appropriateness of infection prevention measures which are a part of how we operate on a daily basis.
*Suspended all group outings.
*Restricted visitors and non-essential health personnel from our communities, except in end of life situations or pursuant to the guidance of PA public health officials.
*Conducting health screenings on anyone coming into the Laurels, including staff.
*Limiting travel of our associates to avoid possible spread of the viral illness from city-to-city.
*Ensuring that any of our staff who are sick stay home.
*Providing regular updates to our teams to answer any and all questions.
*Taking this very seriously and acting out of an abundance of caution.
*Reviewing reputable health websites for updates on a daily basis to be able to share the latest news and information: www.cdc.gov and www.health.pa.gov
If you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact our administrator at: firstname.lastname@example.org
As we have stated many times before:
"Our family of residents come first!"
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Please be safe and stay well!
