Dear Residents and Families,
We wish to inform you that a staff member in a non-patient care area has tested positive for COVID-19. This employee has no direct patient care responsibility and is currently self-isolating at home.
Currently we have no other staff or residents with any COVID related symptoms. To ensure their continued safety, we work closely with the Department of Health and under the direction of Maunalani’s Medical Director, Dr. Patricia Blanchette, MD, to initiate testing for all our residents and employees.
Meanwhile, we continue to observe strict infection precautionary protocol as recommended by the CDC. All individuals in the facility are screened daily for illness. Rigorous hand hygiene, social distancing, wearing masks, practicing respiratory etiquette and other infection control measures continue to be monitored and maintained.
We will continue to update you as appropriate.
Please, feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Sai Chantavy, Executive Director/CEO
