Dear Residents and Family Members:
Earlier today we learned that one of our residents in Parkside Assisted Living has tested positive for the coronavirus. The test results just came back today and we wanted to be sure to notify you as soon as possible. The resident has been in a local hospital where they are receiving medical treatment. Given our current shelter in place guidelines, we are hopeful that this will be an isolated case but only time will tell. We are working closely with the local health department and our team continues to work diligently to ensure we are following all of our infection control protocols.
We understand the concern this raises for your loved ones and the desire to be by their side during this difficult time. The actions we have taken are designed to limit the exposure of our residents and our staff which we believe is critical at this time. We would encourage you to continue to reach out to your family members through the channels we have discussed. Please know we must stay on our current course to ensure the safety of everyone at Beth Sholom.
We are committed to keeping our families up to date on the developments within our facilities. We thank you for the trust you have placed in us to care for your loved ones. We will do our very best to earn that trust each and every day.
Morris S. Funk
President and Chief Executive Officer
