Dear Parkside Residents, Family Members and Staff:
Today we tested all residents and staff, except for recent positive COVID 19 cases which typically test positive after their course of COVID is over. All tested today were NEGATIVE. We have opened dining and activities and are asking visitors and residents to be socially distant and wear masks in public places and during all activities. We will assess these restrictions in a few days. If you or your family member has tested positive, they will remain self-isolating in their apartment.
If you are not vaccinated, or if you were vaccinated more than 6 months ago and have not received a booster, your risk of becoming ill with this virus is significantly increased.
If you are visiting a resident who is in isolation for testing positive, please note that you must don full PPE before entering the apartment or floor. If you decide to assume this risk and visit, please make sure that your face mask remains securely in place throughout your visit, that the person you are visiting is also encouraged to keep a mask covering their nose and mouth and maintain six feet of social distance between you.
Visitors, please test yourself frequently and please do not visit if you are positive or have COVID-19 symptoms.
Please continue to thank our staff when you visit. We have an amazing team, and they are truly working hard and under difficult circumstances. Your kind words and encouragement are deserved.
Please be safe and follow the CDC guidance of wearing a mask and social distancing.
Morris S. Funk
President and Chief Executive Officer
