To our Residents, Families, Team Members, and Community:
As part of our ongoing commitment to the safety and well-being of our residents and team members, we are providing another COVID-19 update. We will continue to provide weekly COVID-19 updates in the following weeks as well.
As of this week, Birmingham Green has nine residents who have tested positive for COVID-19 from Willow Oaks Assisted Living, who are isolating in their residences pursuant to our current policies, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. Willow Oaks group dining services have been paused. We also have a team member who has tested positive for COVID-19. The team member who has tested positive for COVID-19 works at the Health Center (Nursing Home). The affected team member is currently isolating at home, pursuant to current policies and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. Although our team members have been vaccinated, it is possible to have breakthrough cases, thus all infection control measures in place will continue to be followed. For more information on COVID-19 illness after vaccination, please visit the CDC’s website. The District Home has zero positive COVID-19 cases among residents or team members.
We are continuing to follow CDC recommendations and all team members will continue to wear the appropriate PPE and masks, as well as perform proper infection control measures and stringent cleaning protocols. We will continue to ask all residents and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, to always wear masks and practice physical distancing during visitation.
We encourage you to visit birminghamgreen.org/covid-updates for the latest updates, visitation information, safety protocols, and COVID-19 resources. You can also get our latest COVID-19 updates by calling our dedicated COVID-19 hotline at (703) 257-6282. We remain committed to the safety and well-being of our residents and team members, and we thank you for your patience during this challenging time.
Our residents are at the center of all that we do. Their safety and the safety of our team members
will always be our priority.
