To: All Residents, Representatives, and Families:
We are providing a further COVID-19 update as we identify additional cases in either our residents or staff members.
On December 29, Palm Village was notified that one resident in our health care center and one resident in independent living tested positive for COVID-19. Both residents were at other health care settings at the time tests were performed. Both residents did not show any signs or symptoms prior to being tested and currently do not show signs or symptoms. Palm Village immediately implemented isolation precautions for our resident in our health care center and provided an update to any staff assigned to interact with the resident. Palm Village will provide further instruction to any staff members working with this resident going forward until cleared from precautions.
From January 2020 to present 24 residents (12 IL, 5 AL, and 7 HCC) and 55 staff have tested positive for COVID-19. Palm Village continues to work 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
Palm Village continues its weekly response driven testing for residents in our health care center and assisted living including our employees. 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.
We appreciate your on-going support and we ask for your continued prayers during this unprecedent time.
