Dear fellow families,
As part of serial testing, we have tested all residents today (besides those that we positive in the past 90 days) and 8 residents tested positive for Covid-19. Additionally, 2 staff members have tested positive yesterday.
I am saddened to report that one resident has passed away while being positive for Covid-19 at the hospital today. On behalf of the entire Gold Crest staff, I would like to wish our condolences to the family, our deepest sympathies go out to your entire family.
Please be aware that each family is notified individually of Covid-19 positive results and any other change in a resident’s condition. The positive residents are cohorted together. Our positive residents have little to no symptoms and all residents are being monitored very closely and will be tested on a continuous basis until there are no more cases in the facility and/or on their unit.
Feel free to reach out with any questions.
