It was a big week here at RCRNC! On August 3rd we began our outdoor visitation with residents. It was a huge success! We loved to welcome back our families that we have missed over the past several months. Thank you Cheri and Jenn for facilitating these important visits. Also, we welcome back our medical providers and Erin Reddy to our facility this week as well.
We are pleased to announce that on Wednesday August 5th we are opening the dining areas on each resident unit for lunch to allow for safe socially distanced dining. If all goes well with this, we will begin to incorporate breakfast next week. Small group activities and the chapel have also opened this week on a small scale to ensure it is done in a safe manner.
Last Thursday we conducted weekly COVID surveillance testing. All staff and residents that were tested were found to be negative. Testing will continue this week on Thursday August 6th. We ask all staff to participate.
The Watertower Cafe has reopened for staff dining on a limited basis. There is seating for 7 to allow for safe socially distanced dining. Please be aware of the tables being clearly marked as clean/dirty. Cleaning supplies are readily available to allow staff to clean their area after dining. Picnic tables have been setup by the smoking tent for staff dining as well.
RCRNC has received funds for the LTC stipend covering 7/5/20- 7/11/20 and are being processed for stipend payment for payment on 8/6/20.
We hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful summer weather.
Please continue to stay healthy during this time.
Steve and Tiffany
