Parkside Resident and Family Update | Monday June 20, 2022

Dear Parkside Residents, Family Members and Staff:

Today we learned that a staff member at Parkside has tested positive for COVID-19.  As per our policy we have commenced contact tracing and testing as required. Staff and other residents in the affected area have been tested and are negative. We will continue to test throughout the day and keep you posted when we have additional information to share.

We discourage visitation currently due to the risk of exposure to the virus. While visitation is permitted, please be aware that until our outbreak investigation is complete, there is a risk that you could be exposed to COVID-19.   If you are not vaccinated, or if you were vaccinated more than 6 months ago and have not received a booster, your risk of becoming ill with this virus is significantly increased.

If you decide to assume this risk and visit, please make sure that your face mask remains securely in place throughout your visit, that the person you are visiting is also encouraged to keep a mask covering their nose and mouth and maintain six feet of social distance between you.

Visitors, please test yourself frequently and do not visit if you are positive or have COVID-19 symptoms.

Please continue to thank our staff when you visit. We have an amazing team, and they are truly working hard and under difficult circumstances.  Your kind words and encouragement are deserved.

Please be safe and follow the CDC guidance of wearing a mask and social distancing.

Thank you,
Morris S. Funk
President and Chief Executive Officer
