We have a staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19. We are working diligently to test every resident over the next 2 days.
We wanted to provide you with an update here at Riverbend. We have a staff member who is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. The staff member has been put on a leave of absence and we are working diligently to test all of those who have come in contact with this staff member. Over the next couple of days, we will begin testing those residents and employees who came into contact, as well as reaching out to the families of residents who have been exposed.
On behalf of the entire team at Riverbend Post-Acute, we want to thank you for allowing us to care for you or your loved one. I am reaching out to introduce myself, Kristine Farrell, as the new Executive Director for Riverbend Post-Acute. Due to the ever changing circumstances within our community and here at Riverbend, I wanted to draw your attention to some updated policies that we are enforcing to ensure the safety and protection of our residents.
