Update from Administrator – October 13, 2021

Good Afternoon Friends and Families,

I am reaching out to let you know that on Tuesday (10/12/21) one of our vaccinated outside support staff has tested positive for COVID19. This individual was minimally in contact with 6 patients and was wearing a mask along with other protective gear. Following the State’s protocols, we have tested these individuals and I gladly inform you that all have tested negative. We will continue to test these 6 individuals every four days along with maintaining all necessary precautions to mitigate any potential spread of COVID to another patient, staff or families. We believe there is a very low risk that COVID will emerge from this contact. I am happy to tell you that the facility is still open as usual for visitation and there will be little to no disruption in the services we are providing. As I indicat4ed we care monitoring all residents and staff who might have come in contact with this individual and will update if there are any changes.

Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions: 860.489.5801 or administrator@litchfieldwoodshcc.com. Thank you in advance for all your support as we deal with this situation  and continues the process of returning to normal times.


Sincerely, Tim Flaherty
