A message from Denise Bilodeau, Administrator:
August 3, 2020
I hope this message finds you healthy and safe. As you know, we have been doing weekly COVID-19 testing of all residents and staff. We have been able to successfully contain the virus to a limited number of remaining individuals who continue to be stable, asymptomatic and in isolation. Our completed test results from last Friday, July 31st, indicate all negative results. We will continue with testing this week and hope to have clearance from testing by the Department of Health if all tests remain negative.
The health and well-being of our patients/residents and our staff is always our primary concern. From before the outbreak, we have carefully followed guidance from the Hawaii Department of Health (DOH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). There are no shortcuts to preventing the spread of COVID-19 and it’s important that we continue to protect ourselves and support each other.
Here’s how we will handle the coming weeks:
· We will continue to follow the heightened protective measures recommended by the CDC, CMS and the Department of Health – including restricting visitors and health screening and temperature checks of all associates.
· We are happy to arrange an electronic visit with your loved one via (e.g., Facetime, Zoom) or other means of communication. Please contact us at 808-687-3200 to schedule this.
I must re-emphasize that we are not modifying our protective measures at this time.
This continues to be challenging for all of us to remain distant from friends and family, and I want to thank you for your support and understanding. As we continue to see the spread of COVID-19 in our community at large, I hope that you all remain safe and follow the social distancing and masking precautions that are being recommended for everyone.
While we’re not in the clear, we are optimistic about the future.
