Woodlawn Commons Independent Living Updates

August 2, 2023

Dear Woodlawn Commons Residents, Families, Staff and Friends:

We have received notification that multiple residents have tested positive for COVID-19 therefore will be moving to RED masking status effective immediately and making temporary operational changes. We currently have 7 Assisted Living Residents, 7 Independent Living Residents, and 3 Staff members in quarantine.

Per our policy, we will be remaining at RED masking status effective immediately based on these cases. Red status means masks are required for all residents, staff, and visitors.  In addition, communal dining and group activities are discontinued until further notice.

We highly recommend reconsidering visitation until the situation begins to resolve.

All Assisted Living Residents continue to remain under daily surveillance for changes in temperature and signs or symptoms related to respiratory illness, as has been ongoing. Independent Residents should let Gina Mergel or Pati Seber know if you have any symptoms and concerns so they can follow up.

Employees and Residents who may have been in contact with any positive individuals are identified and tested as necessary. We continue to work closely with state and local health agencies on all recommended policies and procedures.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact Pati Seber, Director of Independent Living at 518-691-1562, paseber@thewesleycommunity.org, Heather Roselan, Director of Assisted Living at 518-691-1672, haroselan@thewesleycommunity.org, or Judith Boyd-Nelson, RN Case Manager at 518-691-1572, jbnelson@thewesleycommunity.org.
