Weekly Update – August 26, 2021

Stonehill Communities currently has 3 active COVID-19 cases in the Health Center and has had 3 more staff/residents reporting symptoms in the past 72 hours. We continue to be in outbreak status, identified by CMS as 1 or more cases of COVID in staff or residents. Our outbreak status and surveillance testing will continue until we go 14 days with no new cases.

At this time, visitors are allowed except in the 3rd Floor Household. Only pre-approved compassionate care/end of life visits will be allowed in 3rd Floor Household. If you have questions about visits please contact a social work staff member.

As weather allows, to help reduce the number of people in the building, we encourage outdoor visits as much as possible. In addition, residents are asked to remain in their units for all meals and activities. A rotating Mass schedule has been set up for attending Mass in-person in the San Damiano Chapel. We appreciate everyone helping to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 on our campus.

Please see below for full testing numbers.

Thank you,
