Since our last correspondence alerting you to the most recent resident who tested positive for COVID-19, Miona has tested all staff members regularly, regardless of vaccination status. During this testing, Miona had one staff member test positive for COVID-19. After our investigation of the origin of both infections, Miona believe that these two infections are isolated and unrelated to each other. As indicated in the previous correspondence, all residents have tested negative for COVID-19.
Miona remains diligent with our infection control protocols and continues to test staff and residents frequently. Miona will continue to monitor CDC and CMS guidance, and will test all residents and all staff members frequently over the next few weeks to ensure the infection has not spread. We will continue to keep you informed of changes that impact you and your loved ones.
COVID-19 cases have been on the rise nationally over the last week, and Macon County especially has seen a sharp rise in COVID-19 cases. Miona will continue to monitor county and state positivity rates and adjust our infection control procedures accordingly.
If you have any questions related to this or any other care related issue, please do not hesitate to contact the facility at 478-949-2270.
