Update from Administrator – January 13, 2021
Good Morning Family
I hope all is well, I wanted to inform you that we did have another resident test positive for COVID-19. In total we now have three residents in our dedicated COVID-19 area. We continue to test our staff weekly and follow the guidelines provided to us by DPH, CDC and our local epidemiologist. In the meantime, family visits will remain on hold until further notice. We encourage all families and loved ones to schedule video calls as well as window visits and we will notify everyone once in person visits can resume once again.
On December 30th, Northwood received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. It was administered to a total of 130 people, including residents and staff and we are excited to receive the second dose on our tentative date February 10th! We want to ensure that all the families are notified of positive cases within the facility in a timely manner as well as stay informed, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to call.
