No OceanView at Falmouth residents have tested positive for COVID-19 since the last update provided on April 16, 2020. The community has reported a total of 12 positive cases among residents since early March and no cases among staff.
While the lack of new COVID-19 cases is good news, residents are being asked to continue to stay healthy at home in accordance with Governor Mills’ mandates and CDC guidance. OceanView is continuing to communicate with the CDC and area first responders to ensure decisions going forward are consistent with the most recent guidance and findings.
The strict protocols implemented over the past five weeks remain in place — including restricting vendors and visitors to the community. We are also requiring all residents and staff to wear a mask or face covering when in the hallways or any common areas.
Additionally, all staff and essential vendors are required to complete a screening questionnaire and have their temperatures monitored daily, with staff also required to monitor their temperatures midway through their shifts.
We commend our residents, their families, our staff and our vendors for their vigilance and resolve to keep the OceanView community safe.
