Next Tuesday is COVID vaccination day at Park Manor! Residents and staff will get their second Moderna COVID vaccine. We look forward to completing the vaccination series at Park Manor and highly encourage all families, friends and community members to get the vaccine when it becomes available to them. Park Pharmacy and Marshfield Clinic-Park Falls Center are currently vaccinating. Please contact them regarding your eligibility to be vaccinated.
Our routine testing this week resulted in all negative tests, both residents and staff. The resident who was moved to our Woodlands COVID quarantine unit last week has had no symptoms and will be moving back to her regular room on Monday. We have one hall on the second floor that continues in precautionary quarantine until next Friday, February 12th.
We are excited to let everyone know we are liberalizing our visiting policy, as the prevalence of COVID is decreasing at our facility and in our community. We have provided limited visiting in the past weeks to select residents based on their need. By the end of next week, we plan to open up visiting to all residents at Park Manor. We are working on our policy and guidance and will be getting this information out to everyone by the end of the week. For those who participated in the patio visits last summer, the rules will be very similar to those in place for patio visits. As a preview, number of visitors, duration of the visit, and level of contact will be limited. Visits, other than end of life compassionate care visits, will take place in a designated area separate from the residents room. Visitors will be required to wear full PPE and be subject to a COVID screening and point of care test. Our policy and guidelines will be revised routinely based on the level of COVID in our facility and county, and as new guidance is received from the CDC, CMS and Wisconsin Division of Health Services.
