FREE: Glenburn Home COVID-19 cases rise to five

Monday, April 13, 2020

Glenburn Home is now reporting five positive results for COVID-19.

Glenburn posted a memorandum to their social media reporting the four new positive cases. At this time, the memorandum reads, no employees have tested positive.

“We have notified public health officials as required and are following procedures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention,” the memorandum states. “We are taking every step as recommended by authorities to contain the spread. We want to make residents, their families, and our dedicated staff aware of this situation and reassure everyone that we are on top of it.”

Glenburn also recognized its team for their commitment to the residents’ health during the pandemic.

The memorandum reiterated recommendations by the CDC for helping to stop the spread:

• Maintain a social distance of at least six feet from others outside your household and stay home if possible.

• Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water

• Self-isolate if you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19

• Seek medical assistance as necessary

Executive Director Sue Sowders and Administrator Jean Johanningsmeier will keep the community updated as test results are reported back to them.

  • If none of the employees tested positive and no visitors are allowed, how did the virus get into the nursing home?

  • I don't believe this means that all employees have been tested. Just that any employee who has been tested, their result has been negative. Also, with this specific virus, one can be a carrier and be asymptomatic; thus spreading the virus unknowingly. This is a very strong and dangerous virus. We all must do our part to flatten the curve. Stay safe everyone!
