Update on Visitation for Wednesday, April 21, 2021

On Sunday, April 18 we reported a positive COVID-19 case in a Stonehill Communities employee. The employee is currently off work following public health guidelines. Per CMS this put Stonehill into "outbreak status," which is defined by CMS as one or more positive cases of COVID-19 in a resident or employee. The outbreak status required Stonehill to suspend visits, with the exception of end-of-life visits, until testing of all Health Center employees and residents could occur.

COVID-19 testing was completed on Monday and Tuesday. There were no additional positive cases. Stonehill Communities may resume resident visits, with the exception of the unit the employee worked on, but will remain in outbreak status until April 26, 2021. All end-of-life visits may continue.

The resident rooms that will not be able to have visits until Stonehill is off outbreak status (April 26, pending no new cases) are: 121-137 and 152-157. These residents may resume visits after April 26, 2021.

Thank you for your understanding as we continue to follow CMS guidelines and work together to keep residents and staff safe.
