LCC COMMUNICATES – 6/24/2020

*LCC has completed the initial planning for relaxing of restrictions. We moved into Phase 2 this week.

*LCC continues to coordinate staff Baseline Testing which will drive the next steps of the facility's plan in Phase 2.

*Staff will receive the opportunity to test. This is Strongly Encouaged. A date for testing has not been determined. We continue to coordinate this with the Local Health Dept.

*IF there is a Positive test among staff, LCC will have to test each resident. This could prolong phases of relaxation.

*Once all testing is completed, ongoing submission of paperwork and planning will drive LCC continuing on with the next phase

*This plan for additional phases is still going to have restrictions. You will receive further directions as they come to fruition. We are working on the specifics daily.

*If there are positive cases noted, the phasing will revert back to previous restictions.
