The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) noted the risk level of COVID-19 infection remains at ‘substantial’ for Kent and Ottawa Counties. The CDC recommends everyone in areas with a risk designation of ‘substantial’ or ‘high’ wear a face mask in indoor public places, regardless of vaccination status.
Kent County currently has a seven-day positivity rate of 12%.
We have one positive resident in the Mol Family Memory Care Unit- north.
With the Kent County COVID positivity rate over 10% we continue to test unvaccinated staff in Assisted Living and Nursing twice a week.
It is important to remember, the COVID-19 vaccine cannot prevent 100 percent of infections, but it does prevent most of them. Also, infections among vaccinated people are less severe than those who have not been vaccinated. We encourage everyone to obtain a COVID vaccination.
“Vaccines remain our best tool for ending this pandemic, so we continue to urge everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible.”
