Dear family and friends of Castle Senior Living,
We regret to inform you that we have had one staff member test positive for COVID-19 at our Birchrock Castle location. As a result, all non-essential visitation has been cancelled at Birchrock Castle until further notice. We continue to work with the Waukesha County Health Department to manage the situation. None of the residents or other staff members are displaying any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 at this time.
Birchrock Castle is considered to be under “outbreak status” and all the residents in the community are being asked to quarantine by the local health department. One positive case of COVID-19 from either a resident or staff member places a community under “outbreak status” from the Department of Health.
We understand that most of the residents are fully vaccinated, but they still need to follow quarantine guidelines because they live in a healthcare setting per the updated guidance released by the CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/infection-control-after-vaccination.html.
All other locations are still open for visitation under the safer visitation guidelines. We thank everyone for complying with the safety requirements.
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.
