Health Care Community – The Haven, Assisted Living and Memory Care

We have five (5) new residents in The Haven who tested positive for COVID-19. They were moved to our COVID unit. We are conducting contact tracing and all other residents are quarantined in their rooms. There is also one (1) contract worker that tested positive and is quarantined at home.

We will continue to test all residents in The Haven and Team members twice a week for the next two weeks until two consecutive all negative weeks are reached. Our Infection Control Preventionist is in constant contact with the Chesterfield County Department of Health.  

Team members are following all core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention. Our Therapeutic Recreation team members are conducting one on one activities with our residents. Meals are being served in our resident’s rooms.  

Visitors are allowed in The Haven and Assisted Living Community on the 2nd and 3rd floors. All visitors need to take additional measures to make visitation safer. This includes wearing well-fitting masks, surgical or KN95 at all times, performing hand hygiene, and practicing physical distancing. Do not mingle in the common areas of the community. We encourage everyone to become fully vaccinated and receive booster shots per CDC recommendations. Please do not visit your loved one and contact your doctor if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: sore throat, severe lingering headache, sinus/head pressure, head congestion, runny nose, nausea, cough, and fatigue.  

Visitors who are unable to adhere to our core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention that are consistent with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance for nursing homes will not be permitted to visit or should be asked to leave.
