Dear Westminster Village Residents and Families,
Based upon new guidance, Westminster Village is in the process of scheduling CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) mandated COVID testing for Skilled Nursing Residents (Abbey, Bristol, CooperVista and Devon). The initial testing will begin on Friday, September 18th with the Skilled Nursing residents only. We have no immediate positive cases or concerns currently—we are following the guidelines.
All Westminster Village Employees will also be required to have a COVID test per the mandate. The testing frequency can vary from monthly, once weekly or twice weekly based upon the Delaware County Positivity Rate posted on the CMS website. We have received our own equipment and a limited amount of supplies to test in house. The results of the tests can be processed within 15 minutes.
We appreciate your cooperation and will keep everyone informed as of the set dates and times of additional testing as we continue to follow all of the guidelines set by CMS and the Indiana State Department of Health.
Once again, we are blessed and grateful that we currently have no positive resident or employee cases and ask that everyone please continue to be mindful regarding the importance of masking up, social distancing and washing your hands
Administration, Supervisors and the Management Team
