COVID-19 Update (LHRC)

To avoid letters crossing in the mail and to ensure there was no mixed messaging, a letter home was not sent home to families the week of September 20-26. Our 24/7 hotline was updated and families were called by phone to communicate updates instead.

Due to positive COVID-19 test results at the Lutheran Home and Rehabilitation Center, our projected date to begin in-person, outdoor visitation (September 28) has been delayed. More information will be made available as soon as our healthcare professionals can assess the current numbers.

In relation to our latest COVID-19 stats, the following were updated at the conclusion of the same week. These numbers are subject to change based on employee and resident test results coming to us at a staggered pace:

Symptomatic Residents Tested for COVID-19 – 24
HP & LHRC Residents Tested for COVID-19 by DOH – 153
Residents Tested for COVID-19 by LHRC as of 9/26 (Mandated) – 103
Residents Currently Testing Positive for COVID-19 – 1
Employees Tested Weekly for COVID-19 (Mandated) – ALL
Employees Currently Testing Positive for COVID-19 – 1
Former COVID-19 Positive Employees Recovered – 5
