COVID-19 Update 21
Dear family and friends of Castle Senior Living,
We have eight confirmed cases of COVID-19 in three of our Castle communities. One resident of Victorian Castle, six residents at Sienna Castle and one resident at Emerald Castle have tested positive for the virus. In addition, we have had several staff members test positive for COVID-19.
The following are still in effect:
- Visitation is currently suspended at all locations with the exception of Birchrock Castle and The Grand Hills Castle. The Grand Hills Castle is allowing staffed outside visits only. We will make exceptions for compassionate care (end of life situations). Video calls or virtual visits are still encouraged and available. If you’d like to schedule a virtual visit, please reach out to your community administrator.
- We are working with state and local depart health departments to manage the isolation and quarantine of infected and exposed individuals at each location. We do have access to the rapid COVID-19 test which helps with testing quickly and controlling the spread.
- Victorian Castle, Sienna Castle and Emerald Castle are considered to be under “outbreak status.” You only need one positive case of COVID-19 from either a resident or staff member to be considered under “outbreak status.”
- All of the residents at The Grand Hills Castle that had potential exposure have tested negative for COVID-19. The previous “outbreak status” for The Grand Hills Castle has ended.
COVID-19 cases remain high locally and across the state, so we ask everyone to be extra careful and remain vigilant. Please respect the safeguards that the CDC and the Department of Health have put in place to protect our residents from COVID-19.
The health and safety of our residents and staff remain our top priority. We will continue to be in communication with you as the situation evolves.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Be well and stay safe.
