Farmington Presbyterian Manor vendor tests positive for COVID-19
A vendor at Farmington Presbyterian Manor has tested positive for the virus. The vendor was last in our building on February 28, screening in prior to entering and wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) while in the building.
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, CDC and DHSS guidelines for when the vendor can return to our building.
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.
