COVID-19 Update

August 7, 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.

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.

Cumulative COVID-19 report for the month of August:

  • 12 residents positive
  • 17 employees positive

We want to keep you as updated as possible. We have set up a system that will allow text messages to go to residents, sponsors and employees with updates as they are available. We are using the sponsor’s numbers provided to us on admission. If you are not getting these updates, would like to add a different number or if you wish to opt out of receiving these messages please contact Sheryl Lynn at 205-932-1184.

We encourage contact with family members via phone, letters, Facetime, etc. If you need assistance or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you so much for your support.

Sincerely,

Michelle Robertson
