Dear Extended Cobble Hill LifeCare Family,
We heard back from our lab last night that the staff member who had tested positive for covid this week was in fact a false positive and the result revised. Although we have strong reason to believe that the resident who tested positive this week is also a false positive, out of an abundance of caution will remain on the covid unit for the required quarantine period.
As I mentioned in my earlier communication this week, the increase in false positives throughout the City is concerning. We are reviewing our testing protocol to see how this might inform us. As always, our intention is to be transparent and communicative and additional updates will be posted to the website as they develop.
Best wishes for a great weekend.
