Dear Jeanne Jugan Community,
The RI DOH has provided guidance to all the long-term facilities in the development and implementation of infection prevention and control plans. The Home will continue with surveillance screening of Staff and Residents, twice a week. We just received the final results of our testing on Wednesday. The COVID activity has slowed down with all Residents and Staff testing negative, except for one, similar to Monday’s results.
The Residents continue to stay on their respective units, and as much as possible in their rooms. The Sisters and Staff continue to meet the physical, psychosocial and spiritual needs of our Residents during this challenging time for all.
In preparation for the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, we ask that you let us know as soon as possible if you would like your loved one to receive the vaccine. Please leave a message at 401-305-4010, with your name and the name of the Resident.
Our prayers and blessings are with you, all!
Mother Patricia Metzgar
