To Our Bay View Nursing and Rehabilitation Center Family:
While completing all staff and resident testing Monday, November 9, and Tuesday, November 10, one resident was detected to have COVID-19. All other tests done on staff and residents were undetected for COVID-19. The resident who was detected for COVID-19 is asymptomatic for the disease and will remain in quarantine until said resident has been determined to be no longer infectious. Close contacts, determined by local health departments and infection control staff, will be notified and monitored for symptoms. Close contacts will be notified with further instructions related to quarantine. Bay View has and will continue to be cleaning and disinfecting the facility to control the spread of illness. All staff and residents (with consent) will be tested Friday, November 13 from 9am-2pm to prevent the unknowing spread of the virus and again on Friday, November 20th. Visitation will be suspended until Bay View does not have an additional case in our facility for 14 days.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a virus that is spread even before individuals show symptoms. It spreads from person to person through droplets created when we cough, sneeze, talk, sing or laugh. Thus, it is ever important for all residents, family members, and staff members to closely watch for symptoms that are outside of their “ normal,” and to stay home/in their rooms if they are ill. If symptoms occur, please contact your medical provider to request additional testing.
Please remember to slow the spread of COVID-19:
- Stay home when ill.
- Wear a face covering when in public if physically able.
- Wash hands frequently with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are unavailable.
- Clean frequently touched surfaces, such as doorknobs, tables, etc.
- Limit unnecessary travel, events, or large gatherings.
We all need to continue to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. Thank you for your continued cooperation.
