Here are the latest updates:
- A team member who works on NeuroCare Center North has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual is on a 14 day quarantine, and contact tracing has been initiated to identify, monitor, and support individuals who may have been exposed to the virus. We continue to track our client and staff pending and confirmed cases here.
- Indoor visits for NeuroCare Center North will be suspended for the next 14 days while facility outbreak testing is conducted (all clients and all staff regardless of vaccination status).
- NeuroCare Center South and our Heavlin Residential clients have no visitation restrictions at this time.
- Vaccinated families and clients are able to visit outdoors during this "outbreak" period.
- Due to this outbreak, all NeuroCare Campus clients and staff (regardless of vaccination status) need to complete COVID testing weekly for the next 14 days.
- Special Tree will continue our current masking practices at the NeuroCare Campus as well as other safety protocols including COVID-19 screenings, hand washing, and social distancing.
- Wayne County's positivity rate is rapidly declining and is now below 10%. Unvaccinated staff are still required to test weekly when the positivity rate falls below 10%.
- The COVID-19 Team is revising current protocols to safely lift restrictions on community outings and Leave of Absence (LOA) within the next few weeks. More details to come.
- We'll continue to administer rapid tests to outpatient clients in the NeuroCare Center lobby 15 minutes prior to their scheduled therapy session. A new rapid test is required every 72 hours so testing frequency will depend on each client's weekly therapy schedule.
