Dear St. Paul Hermitage Families and Friends,
Today we tested all the healthcare residents as a precautionary measure. At this time no resident is symptomatic. It will take 48 - 72 hours to receive the results. When we receive the results, we will notify the health care representative of each resident with the result.
As you know, we have additional staff out ill right now. ISDH has approved the use of Nurse and CNA volunteers. If you know of anyone who is a licensed Nurse or CNA, who would be willing to volunteer a few hours a week, please have them contact Megan Zapfe at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will help them through the process of becoming a volunteer.
We currently have had no residents ill with COVID 19 and no residents who are symptomatic at this time. Our current COVID 19 status is that we have had no COVID 19 positive residents. We have had eight COVID positive employees. Four of our staff who are ill are direct care staff on the Health Care Center. Three of the eight staff have recovered and have returned to work. We have had no COVID 19 related hospitalizations or deaths for both employees and residents.
I appreciate all your support and the many ways you reach out to us. If you have any questions, please let me know. You can reach me by e-mail at or 317-213-8430.
Sr. Heather Jean Foltz, HFA
