January 7, 2021 Update

Posted: Thursday, January 7th, 2021 by Barb Keller in Announcements, COVID-19 Updates

We am very happy to report that on January 3rd we were able to vaccinate all skilled nursing residents as well as 140 employees, 13 TRI-Valley medical professionals and 35 volunteers. The second shot for those vaccinated on January 3rd will be January 24. We will need to complete consent forms for all residents needing family approval for the second shot.

We continue to work with our local state legislators to help us obtain vaccinations for Personal Care residents which were part of the CDC guidance as 1A priority. We have been told that we will obtain a vaccination date for that group soon. We will continue to reach out to the Pennsylvania Department of Health to stress the importance of that group receiving vaccinations.

Peter Becker Community completed testing of all skilled nursing employees as part of a two-test-per-week protocol for skilled nursing and we now have all results from the Monday, January 4,  testing. All tests were negative. On Wednesday, January 6, we completed testing of all employees which we complete for employees in all areas of the campus. We have no results returned from those tests.
