The first coronavirus cases at CC Young Senior Living were reported this week.
On Tuesday, CC Young officials were notified that a resident had tested positive for the virus at a local hospital, according to a public notice on the CC Young website. The resident had been transferred to the hospital Monday, a day before results were announced.
Staff began contact tracing and testing.
On Friday in a note to residents and family, CC Young reported that eight residents and seven staff members have tested positive for the virus. All residents and staff members who tested positive were asymptomatic, according to a note to residents and family from CC Young. Contact tracing has been utilized to determine additional staff and residents who need to be tested.
All residents who tested positive or had inconclusive results have been relocated to a single wing on a floor in the Vista building, with one of the building’s elevators restricted for use of that wing. Staff members working with those residents are equipped with appropriate personal protective equipment and clothing that CC Young has been stockpiling for the past few months. Those staff members will work exclusively with the residents in that wing.
CC Young began a phased reopening in June, but state and county orders continues to prohibit outside visitors. The phased reopening has been suspended at this time, according to a news release.
A spokeswoman for CC Young did not immediately return a request for comment.
