December 31, 2021

I want to provide you with an update about what’s been happening around the Village Care Center and the Village as a whole since my last email to you earlier this week.

Yesterday we completed the resident testing that was related to an exposure, and I am happy to write that all residents have tested negative for COVID-19. The three associates who previously tested positive have all recovered. Finally, the VCC currently does not have any resident on isolation precautions related to COVID-19.

Today we received the results for one associate who did test positive. However, because this associate was exposed after the last shift, they worked at the VCC and has not been in contact with any residents since then, we do not need to do any further testing within the building at this time.

All units are open to visitors. I want to reiterate that all visitors must complete the screening at the front desk as you enter the building.  We also ask that if you are sick to please postpone your visit until you are well. Metropolitan area data shows a rapid increase in the number of people testing positive again, and every decision we make affects countless others.

With the rise in the Jackson County COVID positivity rate, I want to remind everyone about the infection control and visitation guidelines (attached).  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.

Here’s what’s happening in other areas of the Village related to COVID-19.

  • Village Assisted Living. After three staff members tested positive, testing was conducted yesterday in Memory Care 2 and the main assisted living area. No residents tested positive; one associate has tested positive.

All Areas Outside of the VCC & VAL. Two residents have tested positive. This week, eight associates also have tested positive.

Have a safe and healthy new year.
