We have identified a new case of COVID-19 in a Health Center employee. There are currently 9 positive cases of COVID-19 in Health Center residents/employees. We are in Outbreak Status. Affected Households include 1 Southeast and 3 Northwest. Visitors are allowed for all residents.

COVID-19 cases/testing at the Stonehill Communities Health Center, as of August 19, 2022:
Positive Resident Cases: 5 Residents; 136 Recovered

Residents Tested w/ COVID-19 symptoms or Surveillance Tested (including pending): 333 (1 Pending)

To reduce the risk of further exposure, residents in the 3 Northwest and 1 Southeast households are receiving their meals in their rooms and group activities have been suspended. We understand that this can be difficult for residents, and will resume household dining and group programming as cases and risk of exposure decrease.
