2/22 Employees and contract employees test positive for COVID-19

Two direct care employees, three non-direct care employees and two direct care contract employees at Farmington Presbyterian Manor have tested positive for COVID-19. The employees last worked on February 2, 4 and 6, screening in prior to their shifts and wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) while working.

We have notified the St. Francois County Health Department and will follow their guidance. Visitation continues with infection control precautions and social distancing requirements per Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements.

We will follow the PMMA® Emergent Infectious Disease (EID) Policy, DHSS and CDC guidelines for when the employees and contract employees may return to work and work restrictions upon their return.

All employees are encouraged to follow CDC guidelines and best practices as these are continually updated. We have been screening individuals as they enter the community building for a shift and before individuals have any direct contact with residents.  We educate all staff to stay at home if they are experiencing symptoms of a respiratory illness or not feeling well.
