As previously mentioned, we tested additional residents in our Health & Wellness Center for COVID-19, and we learned on Friday, May 15, that one additional resident tested positive for the virus. For the current count of positive cases in our community, visit The Illinois Department of Public Health.
We will continue to work with the DuPage County Health Department and our Medical Director to conduct expanded testing of our Health & Wellness Center residents. Therefore, please do not be concerned if you or your loved one is asked to undergo testing for the virus. Residents may decline COVID-19 testing, and any results will be shared confidentially with the resident or the resident’s representative.
We understand that you have concerns and questions about COVID-19 and the current situation in our community. Please know we continue in our commitment to protect the health and safety of our residents and team members. Our team continues to be proactive in mitigating the risk of further exposure to the virus within our community.
We appreciate your support and continued adherence to the protocols we have implemented to protect our residents and team members.
You are always welcome to contact your Oak Trace management team with questions and concerns.
