Long Term Care Covid Updates

September 18, 2020

Fayette Medical Center Long Term Care continues to take proactive measures to decrease the risk of exposure for the residents who live in our facility. We continue to have a no visitation policy with exemptions specified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services. Group activities and the dining program inside the facility remain cancelled. Preventive measures are put in place for those individuals at increased risk of exposure including those who have recently had a hospital stay or those who may have come in contact with a positive individual. All employees and residents are provided personal protective equipment and monitored for signs and symptoms of the virus. Resident safety remains our top priority.

Employee testing is performed twice weekly. Resident testing is performed once weekly.

Weekly COVID-19 update:

  • 0 residents tested positive this week.
  • 0 employees tested positive

Cumulative COVID-19 data:

  • 13 residents tested positive
  • 9 residents have recovered
  • 26 employees tested positive
  • 25 employees have recovered

Employees who test positive are asked to self-isolate at home.

We are in contact with the Alabama Department of Public Health and CDC to make sure all infection control measures are followed. We are testing Long Term Care employees and residents in the facility weekly.
