Dear Residents, Family Members and Business Associates,
We received confirmation that a 2nd new admission from the same facility as the last admission tested positive. We want you to know that we are addressing our serious concerns with the referring facility. They did not disclose information about an outbreak in their building during our admission screening process with them. Our pre-admission screening of residents includes:
- Individual must be asymptomatic.
- Individual has a negative PCR test result within 48 hours of admission.
- Prior to leaving the referring facility to come to Maunalani, the individual must test negative on a rapid antigen testing.
When all of the above conditions are met, the individual is accommodated in a private room in our Quarantine Unit for care and is closely monitored by our professional staff during the incubation period, at a minimum of 14 days.
We continue to follow the direction from our Medical Director, the CDC, CMS and Department of Health.
The pandemic has been long-lingering with no end in sight, as yet. Please be assured that your loved ones’ safety and health continue to be our only priority. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
