August 23, 2021 – Notification of Covid-19

To: All Residents, Representatives, and Families

We are providing a COVID-19 update as we identify additional cases in either our residents or staff members.

On August 23, Palm Village was informed that three non-direct care staff members in our Residential Care Center and one direct care staff member in our Health Care Center tested positive for COVID-19 as part of our weekly response driven testing. The staff members are currently isolating at home under guidance from county health officials.

Palm Village continues its weekly response driven testing for our employees and will continue response driven testing for residents in our health care center as a preventative measure. Palm Village promotes a universal masking requirement, conducts at least daily symptom screenings for staff and residents, has staff dedicated to infection prevention and quality control, monitors visitation and entry into the building, applies precautionary measures to carefully limited communal activities, and provides continued trainings on infection prevention updates.

Palm Village works closely with Fresno health officials when a confirmed case is identified. Due to privacy requirements Palm Village cannot share further information about any of the individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19.

We appreciate your on-going support, and we continue to hold residents, their families, and staff in our prayers as we continue to navigate through this pandemic.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at (559) 638-6933.
