After many weeks of having no active cases of COVID-19 at the NeuroCare Campus (NCC), we were notified on the evening of July 31, 2021 that a team member on NCC North who was fully vaccinated tested positive with the Delta variant and is now on a 14-day quarantine. As a result, the following precautions are now in place at the NeuroCare Campus per MDHHS guidelines:
- We are now in “outbreak” status and required to temporarily suspend indoor/outdoor visitation for 14 days at NCC North, South, and the Heavlin Residence while we test all clients and staff on NCC North, South, and Heavlin regardless of their vaccination status.
- Contact tracing has been initiated to identify, monitor, and support individuals who may have been exposed to the virus.
- We will continue with weekly outbreak testing for 14 days as long as we do not identify any additional positive cases.
- Visitation can resume if there are no new positive cases during the 14-day outbreak testing period.
- All community outings are temporarily suspended at this time. Only essential physician appointments are allowed and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
- As a reminder, we continue to track our client and staff pending and confirmed cases on the COVID-19 page of our website.
We urge everyone to remain vigilant in safety precautions to reduce the spread of the highly-contagious Delta variant which includes following new mask guidance from the CDC, social distancing, frequent hand washing, and getting vaccinated. We’ll continue to keep you up-to-date as we have more news and encourage you to reach out to your Case Manager with your questions and concerns
