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 one team member from our Health Center (Nursing Home) who has tested positive for COVID-19. We also have one resident from Assisted Living (Willow Oaks) who tested positive for COVID-19.
The affected team member and resident are currently isolating at home, pursuant to current policies and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. For more information on COVID-19 illness after vaccination, please visit the CDC’s website.
Due to the substantial transmission rate in the country, our team members will be tested once per week. Birmingham Green’s team member vaccination rates are currently:
Northern Virginia Health Care: 100%
Willow Oaks: 98.6%
District Home: 100%
Northern Virginia Health Care: 62%
Willow Oaks: 56%
District Home: 24%
We are continuing to follow CDC and CMS 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 physically distance themselves 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.
