Dear Residents, Families and Friends,
As you know from our previous letters, the DC Health Nurse Strike team has been coming to our Home every week to test all staff members for COVID-19. Even though we have been COVID-free for some time now, Monday’s test results revealed that one of our staff members has tested positive.
This result warrants our immediate response to re-enter Phase 1 until further notice. Unfortunately, we need to implement several things immediately:
We appreciate your understanding and support over the course of these difficult months. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have received many donations that have contributed in assisting with the care of our Residents.
Individuals often call asking how they can be of assistance. Over these past months, we have been using up a large number of surgical masks, which our staff are required to wear while caring for the Residents. As a result, we can never have enough of this item. At this moment, we could also use extra disposable gowns.
Please be sure when purchasing masks as a donation for our facility that they are labeled “medical mask or surgical mask.”
Thank you and God bless you,
Sr. Mary Michael and all the Little Sisters
