Hello Village at Marymount Family, Friends, and Staff. This is Sue Nall the Executive Director.
Despite the recent COVID outbreak we’ve endured on campus, we continue to do our very best to keep residents safe, happy, and healthy. We know winter can be a time for older adults to feel more isolated – lockdown or not – so our Activities Team is doing all they can to provide fun activities and musical entertainment for residents to enjoy.
Our diligence seems to be paying off as today’s testing revealed no new resident or staff COVID cases at Marymount Place or SCU. We did have a new staff case yesterday, but the good news is that person was a support staff and had no resident or staff contact greater than 15 minutes without correct PPE. We’re not out of the woods just yet but we are hopeful that we are seeing fewer cases.
Our COVID update since March 2020: Villa St. Joseph has 10 Active resident and staff Cases. We had a total of 265 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 2 Active Resident or Staff cases and a cumulative total of 62 resident/staff cases.
We remain in outbreak testing for Marymount Place and Villa St. Joseph. Marymount Place and Villa St. Joseph first floor residents and staff must test every 3 to 7 days, until 14 days have passed with no positive cases.
Marymount Place and first floor SCU staff must continue to wear N95 masks and face shields. All VSJ staff outside of SCU must be in eyewear and a surgical mask. Eyewear is required in other areas due to Cuyahoga County still being in red for transmission.
We want residents at Marymount Place and Villa St. Joseph’s SCU to continue wearing masks outside of their room. As a reminder to visitors: if you or a family member are not feeling well, then we ask that you refrain from visiting.
