Thornapple Manor was notified Thursday morning that one staff member has tested positive for COVID 19. The staff member works in a non-resident area and has minimal contact with residents.
That staffer is off work, feels fine, and is not showing any symptoms at this time. They will be re-tested and return only after two negative tests.
The entire area has been cleaned and sanitized. Thornapple Manor’s infection control team is working with their Medical Director and the local health department to take every step possible to minimize any further exposure.
Thornapple Manor has, and will continue to test all staff weekly. All residents are also tested weekly.
Don Haney, Administrator of Thornapple Manor said "Please know that our team is doing all we can to minimize the risk to our residents and other staff members. Our infection control team and leadership are working with our Medical Director and the local health department to ensure all possible measures are taken to limit risk and any further spread of the virus."
"If you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly" Haney said.
