Dear Jeanne Jugan Community,
We received all the results from last week’s COVID 19 tests of our Residents and Staff. The tests were all processed at the state’s laboratory due to the delay in receiving results.
All Residents and Staff tested on July 15 were negative. In addition, at the end of last week, the RI Department of Health reported that samples from the July 8 screening were contaminated. When the state lab re-examined the samples, all were negative. Therefore, there were no positive cases as previously reported.
The Home restarted the Residents’ communal dining services this week and will resume visitation again on July 28.
Please continue to keep the Residents, Staff and Sisters in your prayers. We look forward to reconnecting with all of you in the near future!
Mother Patricia Metzgar
