Dear Residents, Family and Staff:
As of noon today we have had three (3) new positive COVID-19 Staff cases and one (1) new positive COVID-19 Resident case to report. Currently we have six (6) Residents on CooperVista and seven (7) staff members testing positive. CooperVista is considered a Red/Yellow Zone and all other units remain in the Green Zone.
We continue to be hands on daily in communicating with the Indiana State Department of Health, our ISDH Area Supervisor, the ISDH Infection Control Preventionist and the Delaware County Health Department. We continue to follow the proper protocol per our Infection Control guidelines.
We have now completed our second Infection Control Survey on 10/20/2020. Also on Friday, 10/23/2020, we completed an Infection Control Outreach Review by ISDH. Both surveys and review were conducted by on-site surveyors.
We anticipate the restrictions on visitation until there are no positive tests received for a minimum of 14 days. We highly recommend Residents to travel to their essential medical appointments only. It is very important to social distance appropriately, wear your mask properly—over your nose and mouth and wash your hands frequently.
Due to the positivity rate in Delaware County, all Staff will be required to test twice this week on Tuesday and Thursday per the guidelines.
In the midst of challenges, we are so blessed with such caring, dedicated and amazing Staff providing quality services and care to our very special Residents.
Please continue to send positive thoughts and prayers as they are greatly appreciated. Please check our website at www.wvmuncie.com.
The Administration, Supervisors and Management Staff
