As we have expressed many times, our goal at Special Tree remains first and foremost to do all we can to slow or prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to keep our clients, staff, and communities healthy and safe.
Currently there are no clients with active cases of COVID-19 in our system. After many weeks of keeping the virus out of our facilities completely, we did have one team member test positive at the NeuroCare Center this week, with three additional staff tests pending.
For this reason we are taking measures at the NeuroCare Center to return to some of our previous facility efforts to prevent the spread of the virus:
Announcing On-Site Testing at the NeuroCare Campus
Special Tree has secured the capability for on-site testing at the NeuroCare Campus. Clients and staff can now be tested on-site for COVID-19. Testing began yesterday, July 1st, and will continue Thursday, July 2nd and Monday, July 6, 2020. Testing will be expanded to include staff and clients at off-campus facilities.
As a reminder we are updating our data graphs frequently which track active and total COVID-19 cases on our website where you can follow along for current information.
We’ll continue to keep you up-to-date as we have news, and encourage you to reach out to your Case Manager or Residential Program Manager with your questions and concerns.
