The following is a press release written by the Medical Director of Sherwood Oaks Doctor John Cottle:
Sherwood Oaks has had two consecutive weeks of negative Coronavirus tests, which marks the end of the outbreak which started in early July. Their last confirmed case was diagnosed more than a month ago, and no employee has tested positive in more than 8 weeks.
The in house isolation restrictions are being gradually loosened. Residents may be in the hallway if wearing masks, but still may not congregate. All staff continue to wear N95 masks and eye protection, but no longer need to gown unless doing close personal care. Testing will still be done, but less frequently. Visitors are not yet allowed, but that policy should be changing in another week or two.
