Dear Residents, Family Members, Staff Members and Visitors,
On behalf of Citizens Care and Rehabilitation Center, we hope those receiving this communication had an enjoyable Thanksgiving Day. We are obligated to share with you that a staff member who worked on Thanksgiving Day, has tested positive yesterday for Covid-19. This staff member did test prior to the start of their shift on Thursday, but yesterday opted to complete another test at the center and it was positive. They will remain off of the schedule until permitted to return per facility guidelines which are based on CDC and Maryland Department of Health recommendations.
This individual does not provide direct patient care. However, yesterday our staff completed testing on residents and staff who were potentially in contact with this staff member on Thursday. All tests were negative. We will complete additional follow up tests over the next few days and we will report any positive cases.
It is important for everyone to wear a mask inside of our building, especially following the Thanksgiving holiday. Individuals should also consider wearing a mask if they are going to be out in large crowds. Frequent hand sanitizing is also a strong recommendation to help prevent the spread of any virus. Testing should be completed for anyone who develops Covid-19 symptoms or has been informed that they were exposed to an individual who has since tested positive.
The deadline to sign up for our vaccination clinic is Monday 11/27. The clinic is scheduled for 10am -12noon on 11/29. Residents and staff members can sign up to receive a variety of vaccines including RSV, Covid-19, Flu, Pneumonia and Shingles. Please reach out to our Nursing Administrative team at extension 2100 to sign up or if you have questions.
Ed Walter, Administrator
