Hello Village at Marymount Family, Friends, and Staff. This is Sue Nall the Executive Director.

I have some good news to share with you today. The Ohio Department of Health reported a 17 percent reduction in COVID cases during the past week. This figure is consistent with what they’re seeing next door at Marymount Hospital. There are currently just 4 COVID cases and none in the ICU.

That said … we had a Villa St. Joseph administrative team member test positive for COVID this morning. We conducted contact tracing and determined it may have been passed on by a family member. This person had no contact with residents and staff, so there’s no need for additional testing at this time.

Our COVID update since March 2020: Villa St. Joseph has 3 Active resident and staff Cases. We had a total of 268 resident or staff cases. Memory Care Assisted Living at Villa St Joseph has 0 active Resident and Staff cases and a cumulative total of 22 cases. Marymount Place has 0 Active Resident or Staff cases and a cumulative total of 62 resident/staff cases.

Some more good news … Cuyahoga County’s COVID status has been downgraded from Red to Orange, which means we no longer are requiring eyewear. Most of the building is in surgical masks only at this time.

A reminder to our residents and guests to please wear a mask when you are either outside of your room, or visiting with loved ones. Mask-wearing anywhere in the building remains our policy. Full PPE is required by staff working with any COVID-positive resident.

Remember the 3Ws – wash and sanitize your hands, wear a mask, and watch your distance in social settings. Have a good weekend everyone!
