Update for Saturday, August 21, 2021

Stonehill Communities has identified additional positive cases in employees. We currently are in an outbreak status, however, with this new case our outbreak status window is extended until we go 14 days with no new cases. We will continue to test all residents and staff. Stonehill Communities must restrict visitors during this time until surveillance testing can be completed.

Only pre-approved compassionate care/end of life visits and outdoor visits will be allowed. Mass will be held as usual but all attendees must wear a mask.

Our goal with limiting visitation is to reduce the foot traffic coming into the building and reduce risk of exposure. If you feel your loved one would benefit from a compassionate care visit, please feel free to schedule a visit. Visits should include no more than 2 visitors/day.

The current COVID-19 test results at the Stonehill Communities Health Center, as of August 21, 2021:

Number of Positive Resident Cases: 0 Residents; 61 Recovered

Number of Positive Employee Cases: 2 Employees; 116 Recovered

Number of Resident Tested w/ COVID-19 symptoms or Surveillance Tested (including pending): 162 (0 Pending)

Number of Employees Tested for COVID-19 for Symptoms or Exposure (Including Pending): 343 (1 Pending)

If you have any questions regarding visitation or our ongoing precautionary measures you may contact Peggy Stockel, V.P. of Operations or Matt Jahn, Director of Health Services at 563-557-7180.
