To All Family Members and Visitors,

This is to advise you that the facility is experiencing a COVID-19 infection outbreak.  We have identified cases of Covid-19 infection among residents and staff in the facility.

We strongly urge you to continue to adhere to the core principles of infection prevention and control to mitigate the risk of infection spread by wearing face coverings and masks while inside the facility and physically distance at all times.  Please remain in designated accommodation areas, i.e., family room, resident room, courtyard during your visit.  Please ensure that during your visit you maintain social distancing with your loved one.  We recommend that the safest way to visit is outside in our courtyard but realize that this option is not always available.

Visitors who have a positive viral test for COVID-19, experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or currently meet the criteria for quarantine should not enter the facility.  If you have been exposed to COVID19 it is also recommended that you do not visit for at least 14 days post exposure.

If you would like to be tested for COVID19 prior to your visit, we can accommodate that as well.  Please request a test upon completion of your entrance screening with the receptionist and one of our staff will gladly test you.  The test only takes a few minutes, and Alpine is more than happy to accommodate the request.

We appreciate your understanding of the current situation.  Positivity rates in Randolph County are extremely high currently.  We are working diligently in mitigating the spread of infection.  We encourage you to practice these safe habits not only here at Alpine, but always when in public places.

Sincerely,

 

Chip Lacy-Sellers, LNHA
Alpine Health and Rehabilitation of Asheboro
