Dear Maunalani Residents, Families and Friends,
As an update, we want you to know we have engaged the expertise of Infection Control Specialist Dr. Scott Miscovich, MD of the Premier Medical Group and began an organizational-wide testing for COVID-19 last Saturday August 15, 2020. 162 residents and staff members were tested. All test results were negative. As a further precaution and for everyone’s peace of mind, we will be conducting another round of mass testing on Saturday, August 29, 2020.
Currently, there is no resident or staff with COVID-related issues at Maunalani. We remain in close contact with our Medical Director, Dr. Patricia Blanchette, MD, the State Department of Health and our Infection Control Consultant for guidance and support.
Thank you for your patience. Albeit for brief moments only, we know you are anxious to visit with your loved ones here again. We will update you as soon as we receive the next batch of test results – around August 30, 2020. We hope to be able to resume the modified activities for our residents at Maunalani including the special Hospice Visitation and “Drive By with Aloha”, and other programs.
Please, feel free to continue to call and keep in touch. Our residents miss you as much as you miss them.
