COVID-19 Update 7/23:
Thornapple Manor was notified this morning that one staff member has tested positive for COVID 19. This staff member works in a non-resident area and has minimal contact with residents. They are off work until we confirm they test negative for the virus. The entire area has been cleaned and sanitized. Thornapple Manor’s infection control team is working with our Medical Director as well as the local health department to take every step possible to minimize any further exposure.
We have been, and will continue to test all staff weekly. We will also be testing all residents weekly. The staff member feels fine and is not showing any symptoms at this time. They will be re-tested and return only after two negative tests.
Please know that our team is doing all we can to minimize the risk to our residents and other staff members. Our infection control team and leadership are working with our Medical Director and the local health department to ensure all possible measures are taken to limit risk and any further spread of the virus.
**Thornapple Manor will continue to be closed to all outside visitors per Michigan’s Executive Order 2020-136 to ensure the healthy and safety of our residents and Thornapple Manor team. Our resident’s safety and care is our top priority. You can learn more here about Michigan’s current Executive Order
