We remain covid-clear in all communities except Bay Village in Annapolis, MD.
There is a single confirmed case of Covid-19 in a team member at Bay Village post-vaccine. Our team member is feeling fatigued, but symptoms are mild so far. Evidence currently suggests this is an isolated case, but in accordance with Maryland protocols, we are conducting universal testing of both Residents and Team Members. Bay Village’s Executive Operations Officer has been in contact with families and will provide updates should one be necessary. Visits are not currently restricted due to this case, but we will communicate changes should they occur.
This case is evidence that remaining vigilant – even after vaccination – is crucial to stopping the spread.
Family Visits Bring Joy
Families are celebrating their ability to spend time together, and our community teams are celebrating with them!
Colonial Courtyard at Tyrone hosted a special ‘Welcome Back’ celebration for families of their residents to honor their opening day of visits. Many joyful tears were shed. We’re thrilled to be bringing families back together, safely.
Each community’s plans are different. If you need the specific visitation plan and requirements, please reach out to the leadership team in your local community. This process is fluid as positivity rates in the area change and if the unfortunate case of covid occurs. Precautions are still in place and we strongly encourage vaccination for our families and outside visitors.
Visitation May Be Suspended If…
Indoor visitation is subject to cancellation at a moment’s notice in the interest of health and safety. Suspensions are almost always the result of a covid-positive test result. Visitation will be suspended until they have met the criteria to discontinue transmission-based precautions. This is usually the completion of a 14-day quarantine.
A positive covid result may require a temporary suspension of visitation for testing to determine the level of spread within a community. If the case is isolated, visitation will be permitted in areas that are unaffected by the positive case. We urge patience with these rapid changes and with communication that must occur. The safety and well-being of our Residents and Team are the priority during an outbreak.
It’s important to also be aware that as positivity rates increase again in the local areas, the state may change its policies on visitation and return to a more restricted protocol. We urge all to continue to wear your mask, social distance, and get vaccinated as soon as you are able to help keep positivity rates down and reduce community spread.
Positivity Rates By County
Below are the current Positivity/Incidence rates in the regions where our communities exist. As a reminder, the Positivity Rate is the percentage of all coronavirus tests performed that are actually positive, or: (positive tests)/(total tests) x 100%.
The threshold for concern in incidence rates is at or above 5%.
