As we navigate through this global health emergency, we are dedicated to communicating with our residents, families and communities of steps taken to help protect our residents and employees.
We are writing to confirm that one of our employees has tested positive for COVID-19 at our AbbeWood Senior Living Community in Elyria, Ohio. This particular team member was not involved in resident care, and the person's most recent day at the community was on Tuesday, March 16, 2020.
The case was reported to local, state and federal health authorities, and the community is following all recommended guidelines and directives in response, including additional thorough cleaning and sanitation protocols. Additionally, residents are being asked to remain in their apartments at this time until the risk of transmission is resolved, and the community will continue adhering to strict visitor restriction protocols set forth more than two weeks ago.
The health, safety, security and comfort of our residents and teams is our top priority. We are prepared. Our staff is highly trained in infectious disease protocols, and those protocols have been put in place. We are committed to keeping our residents happy and healthy during this time and will update all parties on a regular basis.
