For Immediate Release

April 27, 2020 (Updated from Original Release on April 24, 2020)

At Kingston Residence of Sylvania, the safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff is our top priority. We are saddened to report we have received confirmation that 5 residents and 1 staff member at our building have tested positive for COVID-19. One of our residents who tested positive is receiving treatment at Kingston Care Center of Sylvania.

We are following all required protocols to isolate and monitor these residents , 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 Residence of Sylvania has prepared for this possibility. State and county officials continue to assure us that we are taking all appropriate measures to report and contain further spread of COVID-19. Given the high risk to the population that we serve, we have adopted a number of measures designed to protect our residents and staff. These include:

  • A no visitor policy
  • Health assessments and temperature readings of staff and residents
  • Isolating and using additional infection control measures for residents with symptoms
  • Protective masks are worn by residents when out of their rooms and also while receiving care. Care staff are wearing masks while in the facility
  • Frequent disinfection of surfaces and equipment
  • Regular hand-washing is being followed by staff
  • Proactively sending staff with any related symptoms home to quarantine
  • Covid-19 testing is being requested and administered for residents and staff with symptoms.
  • At this time we are very fortunate to have secured an adequate supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our staff. Our Covid-19 Task Force is keeping close tabs on the supply of PPE at each of our facilities. We continue to coordinate with state and county officials and independent suppliers to procure additional supplies.

We appreciate your understanding if we are not able to respond immediately to inquiries while our staff is fully committed to investing as much time as possible toward ensuring everyone under our roof is safe and the families of those immediately affected remain updated.

All media inquiries should be directed to mediainquiries@kingstonhealthcare.com.
