A staff member who reported to work briefly (30 minutes) on the Castle Wing was confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19 on 12/21/21. The individual is currently isolating at home. We have tested all residents and staff on the Castle wing and will repeat the testing per CDC guidelines. At this time, all test results are negative and there are no residents or staff members presenting any signs or symptoms.
We have consulted with our Medical Director, Dr. Patricia Blanchette, MD, notified the State Department of Health and are following the CDC guidelines.
In the interim, residents and staff on the unit are under observation and will remain so until we have the results of the test on 12/24/21.
We will keep you updated as needed.
Thank you for your understanding and support. Please contact our DON Brandi Sugihara at 808-695-2802 if you have any questions.
