Covenant Living at Mount Miguel learned on Monday, April 6, that a healthcare employee in Assisted Living has been diagnosed positive with COVID-19 and is at home in self-isolation. This individual has not been on our campus since March 30. At this time, you should know, that no residents or employees are exhibiting any symptoms that are consistent with the COVID-19 virus.

This is the second confirmed case at Covenant Living at Mount Miguel. The first individual we reported back in mid-March has since recovered. As a result of this new case, we have been in touch with our local and state health authorities and are working closely with them for additional guidance, in addition to already following strict infection control protocols. As a reminder, within all high levels of care employees use PPE, when isolation is necessary and we are carrying out disinfection and cleaning within all of the healthcare center.

We continue to follow all of our rigorous safety and infection-control protocols that are in place to help in preventing any spread of the virus to our residents and employees. Also, our visitor restrictions and screening protocols for everyone coming to our campus are in place to mitigate the risk of this virus spreading.

Update 3/12/2020

We remain committed to sharing information with you regarding the COVID-19 Coronavirus situation and all of the precautionary measures enacted to prevent any spread of the virus at our community.

We did learn today that one of our health care employees, not involved in direct care of residents, has tested positive and diagnosed with COVID-19. This individual is now recovering and in quarantine at home.  As an additional precaution for residents and staff, all individuals who had contact with this employee within 6 ft. in distance have been sent home for the next 14 days to self-isolate. It should be noted that as of now, none of these other employees are experiencing any symptoms.

This is the first and only confirmed case at Covenant Living at Mount Miguel.  As a result, this case has been reported to local and state health departments and we are working very closely with them.

Be assured that we will continue to follow all our rigorous safety and infection-control protocols that are in place to help in preventing any spread of the virus to our residents and employees.  Also, additional screening protocols for all employees in healthcare are being implemented which can include temperature taking in order to mitigate the risk of this virus spreading.

Please pray for those impacted by the Coronavirus and know that together we will meet this challenge and move forward with an even stronger community

Update: 3/10/2020

Covenant Living Communities and Services continues to stay on top of the latest regarding the situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) across the nation and in our local communities. To date, none of our communities have been directly impacted. 

However, due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus and in order to maintain a healthy community, we respectfully discourage all non-essential visits to our community. This request is for all individuals—including family members—as a preventive measure and precautionary step to protect our residents and staff until further notice.

Covenant Living is already following strict protocols and guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and local and state health departments. Our emergency response plans include everything from infectious control protocols, ensuring our health care employees providing care have adequate supplies to contingencies regarding dining services and activities, if necessary. In addition, we are reinforcing regular and thorough hand washing as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and telling any employee who is sick to stay home. 

It is important we all remain vigilant and pay close attention to our own health and places we visit, in particular if any resident, employee or visitor has recently returned from travel overseas or has any signs of illness. 

We pray for those impacted by the coronavirus in our country and for the safety of our residents, employees and their families. Together with your vigilance, along with planning and preparedness, we can maintain a safe and health community in which we live and work. 

Update: 3/4/2020

The safety of our residents, employees and visitors is a top priority and it is important that we remain vigilant in protecting our residents and staff to maintain a healthy community.

Covenant Living Communities and Services is paying extremely close attention to the coronavirus situation in our country and on the local level at each of our communities. We have assembled a task force to monitor this situation, remain educated on the latest information from health officials, and implement any plans we have in place that may become necessary to ensure the health and safety of all of our residents, employees, family members and visitors. Our Central Office has a readiness plan for any potential COVID-19 outbreaks, in addition to our already established emergency response plans. 

Our emergency response plans are developed following strict guidelines as recommended by local, state and national health officials. Those plans include everything from infectious control protocols, ensuring our health care employees providing care have adequate supplies to contingencies regarding dining services and activities, if necessary. In addition, we are reinforcing regular hand washing as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and telling any employee who is sick to stay home. 

It is important we all remain vigilant and pay close attention to our own health and places we visit, in particular if any resident, employee or visitor has recently returned from travel overseas. 

We pray the Coronavirus situation across the world and here at home is short-lived and that the residents, employees, and their families of Covenant Living remain untouched. Together with your vigilance, along with our planning and preparedness, it will guide us to maintain a safe and healthy community in which we live and work.
