Dear Residents, Friends and Families,
With more infections circulating in the community, there are more opportunities for the COVID-19 to take hold. Despite even the best infection-control measures that we have been practicing, today we were informed by the Department of Health that a non-patient care staff member tested positive. This is an individual who has no direct care responsibility. The staff member presented no symptoms while on duty and is now 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 offer testing for all our residents and employees.
We want you to know that we remain safe and all modified activity programs for residents will continue, including the daily Drive with Aloha program.
We will continue to update you as appropriate. Please, feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
