Covid and Spring Boosters
Just an update on our Covid situation, we currently still only have two positive residents, who we hope will be out of isolation early next week. We are pleased to report none of our team have tested positive. Thanks again for your support during this period, we appreciate it is frustrating but we are so pleased that it hasn’t spread through the home (and hopefully won’t!)
The vaccine team is still due to visit on the 12th April, however unfortunately the two residents who have Covid will not be able to receive their vaccine on this occasion. We are still waiting on a few consent forms to be returned by POA’s as soon as possible so we can get organised ahead of the visit please. Many thanks.
Save The Date – Sunday 7th May, from 3pm
