Dear Residents & Families,
I want to extend my thanks for your kind thoughts and understanding as we do our best to protect your loved ones and our staff.
As of today, we have one positive test result of COVID-19 in our Bainbridge Senior Living communities. Recently, in collaboration with the Washington Department of Health, we conducted more than 120 tests of residents and staff at Wyatt House and Madison House and have since re-tested residents and staff at Madison House. All residents and all Bainbridge Senior Living staff are feeling well and have no symptoms. We are closely monitoring, and have quarantined, a staff member pending results of a new round of testing.
A third round of testing is scheduled for, Wednesday (Sept 23rd) and Thursday (Sept. 24th) for all Madison House residents and staff. All visitation at Madison House remains suspended; residents remain self-quarantined. All Madison House meals are being delivered to rooms individually. We are working closely with the Washington State Department of Health and following our own guidelines to determine when it is safe and appropriate to resume activities and communal dining at Madison House.
Madrona House and Wyatt House have no positive test results and continue to be vigilant. Winslow Manor is also observing protocol restrictions due to the current situation. Until we have an all clear, no staff will be traveling from one community to another to minimize potential cross-contamination risk. We will send out weekly updates and will send additional updates as warranted by this situation.
Thank you again for your support.
President and CEO
