COMMUNITY HEALTH UPDATE
Covid-19/Coronavirus

December 31, 2020

Lutheran Home has received test results confirming one healthcare center resident and one short-term rehabilitation patient in our healthcare center have tested positive for COVID-19. The families of both, as well as those who had direct contact with these individuals, have been notified.

At Lutheran Home, we continue to actively follow the strict guidelines for senior living communities as directed by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and IDPH as follows:

 

  • Limit visitation to scheduled window visits and certain compassionate care situations, such as end of life

  • Restrict all volunteers and non-essential health care personnel (e.g., barbers)

  • Active screening of residents and health care personnel for fever and respiratory symptoms

  • Universal masking for all team members and external caregivers

  • Separation and isolation of residents when there are COVID-19 cases within the resident population

 

We know, especially during these trying times, these restrictions are incredibly difficult for everyone. We do appreciate your partnership in helping Lutheran Home to vigilantly navigate the challenges of COVID-19. Thank you so much for your continued prayers, support and understanding.
