COVID-19 UPDATE FOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2021

The percent of COVID positivity in Chesterfield County climbed to 12.8% this week as we see the Delta variant moving through the communities that surround Lucy Corr. 

Although both days of COVID testing this week produced no COVID-positive results for our Health Care Center residents, we did have two staff members test positive for the virus. One staff member is part of our support staff in the Health Care Center and the other does not work in the Health Care Center at all. Both are expected to make full recoveries and will remain at home in isolation until they are cleared to return by our Infection Preventionist or Medical Director.

In-person, indoor visits may continue for residents in the Health Care Center even though the county’s rate of infection is above the 10% threshold. All visitors must wear masks correctly during their entire visit. We are permitted by CMS to have indoor, in-person visits because we currently do not have any residents with COVID. Should we experience an outbreak, then visitation may have to pause. While our region remains above 10% positivity we are required to test both staff and Health Care Center residents twice weekly.

If you have not done so, please consider getting your vaccination. There is no cost for the vaccination and, as you have seen on TV or read in the paper, there are now growing requirements that all of us need to be protected from the ever-changing COVID virus if we ever expect to see a return to “normal.” It is alarming to see how many people the hospitals are treating for the virus that are struggling to recover. 

As always, please continue to keep our residents and our caregivers in your thoughts and prayers.

VISITOR SCREENING

Following the updated guidance from CMS, Lucy Corr has implemented the following precautions regarding visitors to our community:

For Individuals Outside of Lucy Corr:

  • On March 13, 2021, we resumed offering scheduled in-person visits per newly released CMS guidelines.
  • Visits must be by appointment only and we encourage they be held in a “common space” away from other residents.
  • Visits will be for a maximum of 30 minutes and are limited to two adults and no children under 12.
  • A staff member will be available to assist visitors and residents to support proper infection control.
  • All visitors must be screened by our staff for fever, respiratory/COVID symptoms, and be given PPE to wear to limit the exposure to our residents and staff.
  • Staff will sanitize the visitation areas before and after each visit.
  • During a visit, visitors are asked to limit their physical contact and practice physical distancing with residents and others.

For Lucy Corr Staff:

  • Our staff members are constantly being monitored for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Staff members have been educated on the process of self-reporting and are COVID tested frequently.
  • We are actively screening staff members before their shift as well as essential non-staff personnel and vendors, such as supply deliverers, emergency medical personal, transportation providers, and other service providers to help prevent any potential exposure or transmission of COVID-19.

VIRTUAL VISITS ENCOURAGED

Our Wi-Fi is available and free of charge for residents. If you provide your loved one with their own personal tablet or Wi-Fi device, they can connect with friends and families at any time, and not have to wait for our assistance.

If you are interested in providing your loved one with his/her own Wi-Fi device to use for virtual visiting, please keep the following mind:

  • The resident should be aware and responsible enough to handle and use the device properly. Lucy Corr will not be responsible for replacing a lost or broken device.
  • The device should be clearly labeled, in a permanent manner, with the resident’s name.
  • The device should include all necessary batteries, chargers, cords, etc.
  • The device should be pre-set with apps and account information so the resident can use it right away. 
  • The device/app should be compatible with whatever device/app you will be using (ex: FaceTime requires an Apple device; other platforms like Zoom, Skype, Google-Hangouts, etc. will work with Android devices.)
  • The device should be from a reputable, well-known brand (like Apple iPad, Amazon Kindle/Fire or Samsung tablets).
