COVID UPDATES

Welcome to our Covid Updates Page

07.02.2020

As of today, we currently do not have any residents who are positive. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic we have had 12 residents who have tested positive. Considering the number of people supported is approximately 375, we are fortunate that number isn’t higher. Family members and representatives of residents who live in a house with a positive patient have all been notified.

Our staff continues to work diligently to come up with fun and creative ways to keep our residents busy and entertained. In individual residences, we’ve held dance parties, holiday barbecues, birthday parties, and even a fair, complete with face painting and games! We have also had a “heroes luncheon” at all of our residences to thank our staff for their hard work and dedication to the people we support throughout this challenging time. These luncheons were made possible by donations from families and friends as well as the CRVI Foundation.

We will continue to keep you and your family informed as we start to enter the next phase of this very challenging time.

We hope you and your family are well.  Each day we hear more about COVID-19 and the impact on our world, nation and local communities. We take stock of how it’s changed our lives and look forward to a day when things return to normal. With that in mind we want to keep you informed of what we’re doing to ensure the safety of your loved ones and our employees.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic we have had 12 residents who have tested positive. Considering the number of people supported is approximately 375, we are fortunate that number isn’t higher. We currently do not have any residents who are positive. Family members and representatives of residents who live in a house with a positive patient have all been notified.

Some of our residents and employees who tested positive for the infection remained asymptomatic. This is one reason extensive testing is so crucial, and why it is our best method of prevention along with quarantining. As test availability has increased nationwide, so has testing availability at our locations.

CRVI continues to implement extensive safety protocols to limit the spread of the virus in our homes and other facilities. These collective efforts have been critical and successful in protecting our residents and employees. These include resident health monitoring, implementation of appropriate isolation protocols, continuing our no visitor policy, eliminating communal activities, employee screenings and temperature checks before each shift, appropriate use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and proper social distancing to limit personal contact. We’ve attached a brief description of these steps.
