Bridgeport Health Care Center testing all patients, employees for COVID-19
Bridgeport Health Care Center has identified seven patients and three employees who have tested positive for COVID-19. The patients are being cared for in an isolation area and the employees are quarantining at home. We will continue to test all patients and employees to identify and isolate possible cases of the virus.
As COVID-19 cases increase due to community spread, we all need to do our part by wearing facemasks properly, maintaining social distancing with those outside our immediate family and practice good hygiene by washing our hands or using hand sanitizer to slow down the spread.
Again, think of those with compromised immune systems in our centers, and in your own communities who may be affected more severely by COVID-19, and follow the guidelines provided by health officials.
As a reminder, visitation with loved ones at the center is restricted per the policy outlined by the Office of Health Facility Licensure and Certification (OHFLAC). Please remember you may request a Televisit (Zoom, Skype) to stay in touch with your loved one here: https://bit.ly/3i53y19.
