A community update regarding COVID-19
Dear White Horse Village Community,
Last week, we received the results of facility-wide testing in Canterbury skilled nursing. Of the forty-four residents tested, four received positive test results, and all four are asymptomatic. As of today, we have six Canterbury residents considered positive for COVID-19, two of which are leaving the COVID care area today.
On Friday, May 29, we completed facility-wide testing in Bridlewood personal care. Yesterday, we received the test results, and all tests were negative for COVID-19. We have two Bridlewood residents considered positive for COVID-19.
Seventeen team members have tested positive for COVID-19, fourteen have been cleared by their medical provider to return to work, and three are recovering at home. Five team members are waiting for test results.
Yesterday, we began a three-phased process of testing team members that work in Canterbury and Bridlewood. We are following the PA Department of Health guidelines for testing in these two areas. Weekly testing will continue for both residents and team members in Canterbury and Bridlewood until 14 days after the last person is considered positive. At that point, we will test 20% of both residents and team members weekly until further notice.
Please email questions to Covid19Questions@whitehorsevillage.org.
With warm regards,
Len Weiser, President & CEO
