Dear Residents, Family Members, Staff and Community Partners,
 
As you know, due to the coronavirus, we have had no in-person visitation within our facility since early March.  Widespread restrictions on in-person visiting and communal dining and activities within our Home are still in place.  However, since the beginning of August, we have allowed visitation between families and residents through our glass enclosures, i.e. residents in our sunroom and/or auditorium and families in our healing garden.  This has been going very well and it has been so gratifying to see how happy this has made the residents and their families.
 
In recent consultation with the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH), we have received the green light to allow in-person visits between residents and their families inside our facility. Visitors will now be allowed in the building in one designated area – our Sunroom.  Families will enter the building from the healing garden and go directly to the Sunroom.  Only one resident/family visitation can occur at a time.  Visitation guidelines for in-person visitation are outlined below.
 
Below are the guidelines for this type of visitation at this time:

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or Michelle Garrison.  Please know that we will continue to have video visitation via iPads/iPhones if you are unable to visit as outlined above.
 
We are excited to be able to offer modified in-person visitation at this time.  We are hoping to begin these visits during the week of October 26th.  As regulations continue to be relaxed throughout the city and state, we will communicate how this will affect you and our residents.  By adhering to the guidelines we have outlined, you will be helping all of us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our residents.
 
With gratitude for your support and prayers for your continued safety,

Dear Residents, Family Members, Staff and Community Partners,
 
In our ongoing compliance with The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) reporting requirements, I am providing the following information.
 
As I mentioned in my last update on July 24th, all staff that had not previously been tested for COVID-19 were tested on July 20th onsite at St. Ignatius with the assistance of CVS.  We received the majority of the results on July 27th.
 
As of July 27, 2020, we have:
 
36 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 among Staff and 0 Staff who are exhibiting new respiratory symptoms (previously 32 total confirmed cases).   Four (4) staff were newly identified as COVID-19 positive as a result of testing performed on July 20, 2020.  The four staff identified do not provide direct care to residents and were not symptomatic so we do not need to retest any residents that they may have come into minimal contact with.  The staff will self-quarantine for the required amount of time as per federal, state, and local guidelines before returning to work.
 
These cumulative numbers will be updated regularly as required.
 
As always, we continue to follow the guidance and direction of federal, state and local agencies and public health officials to mitigate further spread of the virus.
