This includes three additional residents who have been cleared by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
  • In addition, there are nine residents (an increase of one since yesterday) considered active cases receiving care in hospital.
  • Currently, there are 48 active cases among staff who are either isolating or in care – no change since yesterday. We continue to be in touch with them regularly and support them in their recovery. For those staff who have been deemed ‘close contacts’, they continue to isolate and be tested as a precaution.
  • It is with a heavy heart that we report a resident who had previously tested positive for COVID-19 passed away yesterday. We have been in touch with the family to offer our condolences and support. He was a valued member of our community and will be greatly missed by his family, our residents and staff. Sadly, to date, 18 residents have died from COVID-19.

Our primary concern during this time continues to be the wellbeing, health and safety of our residents and staff.

We continue to communicate daily with all families of residents by telephone and email to provide them with updates during this incredibly challenging time.

Baptcare remains focused and committed to providing our best care for all residents and to protect our staff – their health and wellbeing remains our unwavering number one priority.
