Dear Family Members,
The Leland of Laurel Run is concerned for the ongoing welfare, safety, and health of our residents. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is monitoring the outbreak of a new virus, COVID-19. The people most likely to become severely ill from COVID-19 are older adults and those with underlying medical conditions.
To the best of our knowledge, none of our residents or staff members have COVID-19. To minimize the risk of our residents becoming sick with the COVID-19, we are suspending all visits to The Leland of Laurel Run, until further notice. This decision is being made in accordance with recommendations form the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
We understand that connecting with family members is important. Other ways to connect include telephone, email, text or through Facebook.
The CDC has made several recommendations to reduce the potential for the virus to enter our building. Our center is following those recommendations. These include strict handwashing procedures, and in many circumstances, wearing facemasks, gowns, and glove when interacting with residents who are sick.
We also are staying up -to-date with the CDC recommendations. In addition, The Leland of Laurel Run is following guidelines from our local and state health departments. For the most up-to-date information on this topic, please visit the CDC website at http://www.dc.gov/covid19.
We will notify you if any residents or staff are diagnosed with COVID-19. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
