Lincoln Nursing & Rehabilitation Center testing all patients, employees for COVID-19
Lincoln Nursing & Rehabilitation Center has identified one patient and two employees who have tested positive for COVID-19. The patient is 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.
Vaccines were administered to employees and patients on December 15th and received their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine on January 6. Fifty-five patients and 73 employees received their vaccinations during the January clinic. The vaccine will not reach its immunity potential until one week after the second dose has been administered.
Lincoln Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is doing everything possible to stop the spread of the virus, whether by vaccine or other treatments. We all need to continue 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.
Please remember 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.
