Good Samaritan Home is pleased to announce that all resident test results from the affected neighborhood, aside from the confirmed positive resident last week, have been returned as negative. The resident room quarantine has been lifted from the previously affected neighborhood, and all residents now continue to be quarantined to their individual neighborhoods. Staff will continue to be tested on a weekly basis, and we will keep you updated as we receive weekly results.

We stand by our commitment to the health and safety of our residents and staff. We continue to take precautions, which include:

• Continued screening of all staff members and other essential persons entering our facility for symptoms related to COVID-19.
• Continued screening of all residents several times a day with vital signs and temperature checks.
• Resident meals in their neighborhood dining room.
• Activities held in resident neighborhoods.
• Beauty shop closure.
• Continued disinfecting of resident rooms, common areas, and high-traffic areas multiple times daily.
• All staff will continue to wear masks and practice good hand hygiene.

We continue to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), and the Adams County Health Department.

For any questions or concerns, please contact your loved one’s designated social service aide.

Thank you for your prayers, patience, and support during this time. 

Good Samaritan Home of Quincy
