On May 1, 2020 the Tulsa Public Health and Oklahoma State Department of Health administered COVID-19 tests for our residents and associates at Aberdeen Heights Assisted Living.
We are relieved to report that none of our residents tested positive for the virus. Two of our associates tested positive from this round of testing and have been quarantined at their homes away from the community. Additionally, we have one other associate who tested positive for the virus a few weeks ago and has not returned to work since.
Additionally, we are happy to report that our resident who tested positive on April 9, 2020 has fully recovered and been cleared for the virus with two negative test results and is back in the community.
Because none of our residents tested positive for the virus, we have lifted the resident quarantine effective yesterday, May 5, 2020. While residents will be allowed to leave their apartments and enter the main community, they still must not leave the community unless for a medical emergency. We will continue to prohibit families, volunteers and non-essential providers from visiting as put into effect on Friday, March 13, 2020 and we will continue to practice social distancing with no communal dining or large group events at this time.
These tests were part of a state mandate that all residents and associates in senior living communities with reported positive cases of COVID-19 must be tested for the virus.
We will continue to post any updates regarding COVID-19 as they arise via social media and internal communications with our associates, residents and their responsible parties.
