November 28, 2022

We have had four positive resident cases today. The positivity rate for Elkhart County is currently low. Per the Indiana Health Department, we are required to implement the following when we have 4 or more positive resident cases reported in a 24-hour period:

Current Situation
While we have experienced four positive positive cases on the final day of the holiday period, it is not unexpected with residents leaving the facility and spending time with family and friends, being out in the community, etc. Mask-wearing and other traditional precautions are negligible
in Elkhart county and surrounding areas. Likewise, we experience higher than normal levels of the flu during the holidays in general given the same circumstances.

Due to the four reported cases, per the Indiana Health Department guidelines, we must reinstate mandatory mask-wearing for a minimum of 10 days until cases have been mitigated or longer. This is a precautionary measure to avoid the further spread of COVID in our facility. We will advise all when the mask mandate has been lifted estimated to be around December 7th if all goes well.

COVID UPDATE
We have had no cases reported today.

LONG HAUL COVID
While the severity of COVID can be mitigated during onset, we want to remind you that Long Haul COVID is alive and well in this country. Numerous cases of post-COVID symptoms are occurring all over the country. These include, but are not limited to fatigue, shortness of breath, cough, joint pain, continued loss of smell and taste, and chest pain. Other issues include cognitive problems, difficulty concentrating, depression, muscle pain, headache, rapid heartbeat, respiratory problems, and intermittent fever.

According to Dr. Emily Brigham of Johns Hopkins University Hospital:

“What’s curious is that it seems post-COVID-19 syndrome is not just afflicting people who were extremely sick with the coronavirus. Patients who were never severely ill are coming to our clinic and saying that their lives are different now,” Brigham says. Post-COVID symptoms tend to leave the body gradually and cannot predict how long they will remain.

We understand and respect individual choices. Our obligation is to protect our residents and mitigate risk of contracting COVID and further suffering long-haul COVID symptoms, negatively impacting their overall health and well-being. We are called to care, and we take our calling very seriously. We ask that you respect our staff in their tireless efforts to protect our residents.
