A third round of COVID-19 testing at Trinity Homes has resulted in zero positives for the facility.
A total of 465 residents and staff were tested for COVID-19 on July 1, 2020, as part of the phased approach to resuming visitation at long term care facilities outlined in North Dakota’s Vulnerable Population Protection (VP3) Plan. Results received this week reveal all of the tests were negative.
Rhonda Walter, Vice President and Administrator of Trinity Homes, says this latest round of mass testing gets the facility a step closer to reuniting families. Trinity Homes has been approved to move to Phase 2, which will allow increased visitation and changes in dining, activity levels, and outside activities. The facility will be communicating the specifics of these changes with individual resident representatives.
Trinity Homes is currently authorized to schedule outside visits between residents and family members while exercising social distancing and observing other safeguards, such as wearing face coverings and performing appropriate hand hygiene.
