As our nation, state and local community cope with the coronavirus pandemic, we wish to provide you with this important update regarding The Blake at Kingsport.
We previously shared that on November 26, one resident tested positive for COVID-19. We began contact tracing and actively screening residents and staff members who may have come into contact with the resident. We preemptively tested 14 staff members and 28 additional memory care residents. All 14 staff members and all 28 residents tested negative for COVID-19.
We greatly appreciate your support and understanding during these challenging times, and fully recognize how difficult this situation is for our residents and families. We will continue to provide you with periodic updates when we have new information to share and updates about resuming visitation, activities, and communal dining. We encourage you to check our COVID-19 update website
