For Immediate Release
April 27, 2020
At Kingston Care Center of Sylvania, the safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff is our top priority. Working in close coordination with the Lucas County Health Department and our local hospitals, we began proactively testing all residents in our building on April 24th, results from the lab are starting to come in as of April 27th.
We are saddened to report we have received confirmation that 26 residents and 5 staff members at our building have tested positive for COVID-19. We have also admitted 6 positive residents from our local facilities and hospitals into our respiratory unit. 2 staff members are considered probable due to showing symptoms related to COVID-19, and we are following CDC, ODH and Lucas County Guidelines to ensure their safety before returning to work.
We are following all required protocols to isolate and monitor residents who have tested positive, and we are in contact with families of all residents. Staff who test positive for COVID-19 are required to quarantine before being assessed to return to work.
If any other resident shows symptoms related to COVID-19 we will be in contact with the family by phone to discuss our care protocols. Any other updates regarding COVID-19 at our building will be posted on our website. We will do our very best to update our site with timely information.
Kingston Care Center of Sylvania has prepared for this possibility.
