Current visitation in our Community IS NOT allowed at this time. Only ESSENTIAL PERSONNEL are allowed to enter the Community. In the Governor’s Executive Order GA-34, it states that assisted living facilities and long-term care facilities should continue to follow guidance from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) regarding any visitation and should continue to follow infection control policies and practices issued by HHSC. Therefore, we do not currently anticipate any changes to our current practices next week.
We know you are all aware of the unprecedented winter weather conditions we are experiencing right now in Texas. Our facilities are faced with many of the same concerns as others in Texas – rolling power outages, freezing pipes and delayed vendor deliveries. We wanted to let you know the actions we are taking at Lakeshore to protect our residents. We have had some of our pipes freeze and burst and delayed vendor deliveries.
As I am sure many of you are aware, Texas is experiencing an increase in the reported COVID cases. We currently have no residents that are showing signs or symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19. However, we have recently learned that two of our employees have tested positive for the virus.
