To recap recent events, Lindan Park’s residents and employees underwent a mandatory mass testing for COVID-19 on June 21. We received notification July 6 that one employee tested positive for COVID-19 during that testing. We still have results pending and will update you upon receipt of those results. Also, we received notification June 9 that an employee tested positive for COVID-19 at a Dallas hospital; that employee last worked June 7.
Our facility is under complete quarantine with only essential medical personnel permitted inside. We continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control, Local Health Department, and Texas Health and Human Services guidance in medically assessing and examining employees at the beginning and end of each shift. We are diligently monitoring and assessing residents and employees, following the disinfecting and housekeeping protocols, adhering to social distancing guidelines, and numerous other preventative measures. Residents have been assigned representatives to aid with communication to family members via Smartphones, tablets, and computers to help minimize feelings of social isolation.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends who have lost loved ones due to COVID-19. As our nation and the world experience the impact made by the Coronavirus pandemic, rest assured we have implemented the best available precautions and have the appropriate supplies needed to care for your loved one. If you have questions or comments, please contact Administrator Alvina Conte at AConte@paramounthc.com. Please check back to our web site for further updates.
