Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Update  – 5/18/2022

This week’s response testing for the nursing home residents and staff has been completed and I am happy to report that all have tested negative for the second week in a row!

I have spoken with NHDPH and they have cleared us of any outbreak and have closed this case.

Currently, there are no other active cases of COVID-19 among Residents or staff.

We will continue to test our not-up-to-date staff twice weekly as required by CMS based the transmission rate in Rockingham County.  The rate continues to climb and when last updated it was at 12.7%.  There is definitely another spike happening in the Northeast at the moment so please be cautious and don’t simply assume that you have “allergies”.  If you are symptomatic, please consider whether or not you should visit the facility.  We have seen an uptick in family members calling us to say that they have tested positive shortly after visiting their loved ones.

To complicate matters, the Seacoast community finds itself entering a very late flu season and influenza cases are on the rise.  Flu can also be very harmful to our residents.  Please don’t assume that it is safe to visit simply because you have tested negative for COVID-19.  If you have ANY symptoms, we ask that you please postpone your visit until you are feeling better.

Stay safe and healthy!
