We wanted to provide you a new update on what is currently going on related to COVID in our Community. We continue to have new residents and staff testing positive in our periodic mass testing for the virus. All positive residents remain in the building, isolated and receiving treatment from dedicated staff and with heightened infection control procedure, and staff are quarantining at home…
With our most recent round of testing yesterday, we currently have 3 positive staff members and 19 positive residents. As in the past, all staff quarantine from home and return-to-work dates will be determined following local health department and CDC guidance. All of the new positive residents remain in the Community in isolation and receiving cares with heightened infection control procedures. Given the current amount of positive cases, we are again restricting visitation with the exception of compassionate/end-of-life visits and visits by essential healthcare providers.

With this new surge in positive COVID cases in the state and the country in general, we continue to perform weekly testing on our staff and bi-weekly testing on our residents. In our latest round of testing, we had one resident test positive and four employees (all of who do not provide direct care to residents) test positive.
Sherwood Village is committed to keeping you updated about our response to COVID-19. We’re providing this update to inform you of changes to comply with ADHS restrictions as Pima County has again been classified as having Substantial spread of the virus. As I am sure many of you are aware, Arizona is experiencing an increase in the reported COVID cases. We are committed to keeping our residents and staff as safe as possible through mitigation efforts.
With all the increase in COVID cases through the nation, I wanted to provide you an update on COVID within our Community. We are happy to let you know that we have had zero COVID cases for staff or residents since August 31.
We need your help! Our county remains in the Moderate phase which means visitation is still limited as the county’s COVID numbers are still too high. We need all residents, families and friends to please adhere to our visitation rules as they are in place for the safety of all. Over the past weekend, we had to turn away several families who did not follow the visitation rules that we had sent out on September 17th. This is difficult on all involved…
We wanted to provide you an update since our last communication on July 21, as we stated in our previous communication, we had taken the proactive step to test all of our residents. To date, out of almost 150 residents, we now have only eleven individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 with still only two of those that need care outside of our community. We still have nine pending tests.
Since our last communication, we have now taken the proactive step to test the remainder of our residents, regardless if they were displaying signs and symptoms of COVID-19. As of right now we have 15 positive cases. Out of the 15 positive, 7 are currently showing no signs or symptoms of the virus. We would continue to ask you to assist us in encouraging assisted living residents to stay in the community and when outside of their rooms, to wear masks, practice good social distancing and frequently wash/sanitize their hands.
