November 19, 2020

Dear Regency Families, Friends, and Team.

On Wednesday, November 18th we were informed that a team member tested positive for COVID -19. The Local Health department was immediately notified regarding this result. Per the guidance of VDH, there is no need for further testing at this time and this team member has been asked to quarantine at home until further notice.

We continue to keep our current restrictions and processes in place, including wearing masks at all times, screening residents a minimum every four hours and team members every shift, and practicing social distancing. Keeping these essential measures in place will continue to keep our residents and team as safe as possible.

At this time we have also chosen to suspend all visitation until Monday November 23, 2020. As a community, our priority is to keep your loved ones safe and healthy. We feel that this added layer of protection will allow us to ensure visitation over this upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday.

Thank you again for all of the support through these challenging times.

If you have any questions, we are here for you. Please call us at 540.456.9857.

Kind Regards,

Vickie Conner, LPN, ALFA
