COVID-19 Outbreak Plan
On Monday, January 25th, Friends Village, in conjunction with Walgreens, began the COVID-19 vaccination process with our Independent Living residents.
Friends Village will begin the COVID-19 vaccination process, through our pharmacy partner CVS, on January 11, 2021. The second round will take place on February 4, 2021. (postponed from 2/1/21 due to snow)
On November 12, we were made aware that a staff member in our Healthcare Center had tested positive for COVID-19.
The staff member is in quarantine at home. We have notified public health officials as required and are following procedures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. 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 doing everything in our power to maintain the health and safety of our community.
Our focus remains on the health and well-being of our community. We must also recognize our team for the concern and commitment they have shown to our residents during this challenging time. Our mission has never been more meaningful.
Please be assured, Friends Village at Woodstown is following all the guidance and recommendations set forth by the State of New Jersey, the Centers for Disease Control and our Medical Director Dr. Wamiq Sultan MD. These guidelines are not taken lightly and are to prevent any future spread.
As a result of our positive case, we are required by the State Department of Health (DOH) to go back to Phase 0 of the reopening plan. This means that we are suspending all indoor and essential care giver visits for a minimum of 28 days. All staff will continue to be COVID-19 tested weekly. We will continue to update you as we move through this process.
