COVID-19 Update 8/7:
We have been and will continue to test all staff weekly- the staff member that had tested positive for COVID-19 in July, never had any symptoms and tested Negative twice since her initial positive test. This appears to be a false positive, but we have no confirmation of that. All residents were tested for COVID-19 over the past two weeks and all have come back Negative with the exception of the residents that we have admitted with Covid into the COVID unit. All other staff members thus far have also tested Negative for COVID-19.
Please know that our team is doing everything we can to minimize the risk of infection to our residents and staff. There has been no cross contamination or spread of infection thus far and we will do everything possible to keep it that way.
Thornapple Manor will continue to be closed to all outside visitors per Michigan’s Executive Order 2020-136 to ensure the health and safety of our residents and staff. Our Infection Control and Leadership teams will continue to collaborate with our Medical Director and local health department, as well as follow regulatory and CDC guidelines to minimize the spread of this virus. The care of our residents and your loved ones will be our top priority. Thank you for entrusting in us to provide the care they need! You can learn more here about Michigan’s current Executive Order
