Community Update:  5/22/2020

We remain committed to sharing information with you regarding the COVID-19 situation and all of the precautionary measures enacted to prevent any spread of the virus at our community.

Under reporting requirements by the state health department and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), we are providing a weekly update regarding any information as it relates to the current Coronavirus situation.

It has been our commitment to share with all residents, family members and employees if there has been a positive COVID-19 case at our community. Since March of this year when tracking started, our cumulative totals of as of today, May 22, 2020 are as follows: Two employees have tested positive for COVID-19 as previously shared.  There have been no residents who have tested positive.

We maintain close contact with both the county and state health departments regarding the latest information and updates, along with CMS and CDC, and per these communications, our updated infection control protocols include: 

  • Individuals presenting COVID-19-like symptoms are immediately isolated and we are following CDC, local and state health department guidelines when caring for those with COVID-19.
  • For any possible healthcare resident with a confirmed COVID-19 case, all efforts will be made to provide a private room with private bathroom.
  • We have primary care employees dedicated to each resident. If we have multiple residents with COVID-19 or COVID-19 like symptoms, we attempt to ensure the same nurse and CNA is assigned to all COVID-19 patients.
  • All employees wear masks and those caring for COVID-19 patients wear full personal protective equipment (PPE) to ensure their safety and to prevent the spread of the virus to others.
  • All healthcare resident rooms are disinfected twice daily and there are enhanced cleanings in all common areas within the health center.
  • All employees have been trained in proper PPE usage, as well as proper infection control measures.
  • Employee and contractor screenings continue to be required with daily health assessments and temperature screening; healthcare employees are screened at the beginning of their shifts. If anyone fails the screening, they are NOT allowed to enter. 

The health and safety of our residents and employees is our highest priority.

In keeping with our commitment to share information regarding the Coronavirus situation at Covenant Living at Inverness, we have provided residents, family members and employees the latest update. Since our last communication, we have learned that an employee has been diagnosed positive with COVID-19. This individual last worked on Wednesday, April 22 and has not been at the community since that time.

In following our current guidelines and protocols, all employees, including contractors, coming to work each day are screened with health assessment questions and a temperature screening. If an employee, visitor or contractor fails in any area of the screening, they will NOT be allowed to enter.

We continue to monitor all residents and employees who may exhibit any symptoms consistent with COVID-19 and, if necessary, ask that they reach out to their personal physicians for medical advice.

We are following stringent infection control protocols. We have a community COVID-19 task force in place and we are in continuous contact with our Central Office COVID-19 task force that is providing us with additional information regarding guidelines, and cleaning and securing medical supplies.

Update: 3/10/2020

Covenant Living Communities and Services continues to stay on top of the latest regarding the situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) across the nation and in our local communities. To date, none of our communities have been directly impacted. 

However, due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus and in order to maintain a healthy community, we respectfully discourage all non-essential visits to our community. This request is for all individuals—including family members—as a preventive measure and precautionary step to protect our residents and staff until further notice.

Covenant Living is already following strict protocols and guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and local and state health departments. Our emergency response plans include everything from infectious control protocols, ensuring our health care employees providing care have adequate supplies to contingencies regarding dining services and activities, if necessary. In addition, we are reinforcing regular and thorough hand washing as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and telling any employee who is sick to stay home. 

It is important we all remain vigilant and pay close attention to our own health and places we visit, in particular if any resident, employee or visitor has recently returned from travel overseas or has any signs of illness. 

We pray for those impacted by the coronavirus in our country and for the safety of our residents, employees and their families. Together with your vigilance, along with planning and preparedness, we can maintain a safe and health community in which we live and work. 

Update: 3/4/2020

The safety of our residents, employees and visitors is a top priority and it is important that we remain vigilant in protecting our residents and staff to maintain a healthy community.

Covenant Living Communities and Services is paying extremely close attention to the coronavirus situation in our country and on the local level at each of our communities. We have assembled a task force to monitor this situation, remain educated on the latest information from health officials, and implement any plans we have in place that may become necessary to ensure the health and safety of all of our residents, employees, family members and visitors. Our Central Office has a readiness plan for any potential COVID-19 outbreaks, in addition to our already established emergency response plans. 

Our emergency response plans are developed following strict guidelines as recommended by local, state and national health officials. Those plans include everything from infectious control protocols, ensuring our health care employees providing care have adequate supplies to contingencies regarding dining services and activities, if necessary. In addition, we are reinforcing regular hand washing as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and telling any employee who is sick to stay home. 

It is important we all remain vigilant and pay close attention to our own health and places we visit, in particular if any resident, employee or visitor has recently returned from travel overseas. 

We pray the Coronavirus situation across the world and here at home is short-lived and that the residents, employees, and their families of Covenant Living remain untouched. Together with your vigilance, along with our planning and preparedness, it will guide us to maintain a safe and healthy community in which we live and work.
