Our goal is continued communication with families and excellent care for our residents.
Elwood Health and Living has detected positive cases of Covid-19. We learned on October 15th an employee tested positive after our routine weekly Covid-19 testing. Since then, we have completed additional testing on all residents and employees. Unfortunately, we have additional positive cases which include both residents and employees.
Since learning about our positive cases, we have created Red, Yellow, and Green zones within our facility to ensure that we classify residents appropriately. Residents with positive test results are located in Red zones and those that are at the end of their isolation will move to the Yellow zone. Residents that test negative are in the Green zone. Currently, all affected residents are in satisfactory condition and are being monitored closely. We are utilizing the appropriate PPE in all areas based on the CDC guidelines. We have also been in direct contact with the Indiana State Health Department and will continue to monitor resident health, tests, and will follow their direction as we fight the pandemic.
We would like to thank our entire staff for their passionate care and hard work for our Elwood Health and Living residents during this Covid-19 outbreak as well as the families of our residents who have placed your loved ones in our care. We’d also like to thank the surrounding community for their outpouring of support at this time. Our goal is continued communication with families and excellent care for our residents.
