Dear Jeanne Jugan Community,
We are just receiving the results from our COVID testing from November 4, 2020. The results received were all negative except for one staff member. The home is waiting for further guidance from the RI Department of Health (DOH), however the RI DOH has recommended that visitation be suspended due to the increasing numbers of positive cases in Rhode Island. Other activities such as communal dinning and outdoor walks will not be suspended at this time.
The Jeanne Jugan community will continue to be vigilant regarding infection prevention practices and following the RI DOH directives, including screening, self-monitoring for symptoms, hand-hygiene, social distancing, and wearing a surgical mask. We thank you for your continued support and prayers.
During this time of autumn glory, may we continue to find peace and celebration in the simple things that life has to offer.
Mother Patricia Metzgar
