May 27, 2020

Dear Residents and Families:

The health and safety of our residents and team members is our highest priority. As we continue to face the uncertainty and concern regarding the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we continue to follow the guidelines of the Illinois Department of Public Health (“IDPH”), McHenry County Health, and Centers for Disease Control (“CDC”).

We are unfortunately reporting that one of our Residents and one staff member at Eastgate Manor have tested positive for COVID-19. The last day the employee worked was May 21, 2020. At this time a total of three residents and four staff have tested positive for the virus. We will be following IDPH and CDC protocols before the Residents and staff return to the building. The Resident is currently in the hospital receiving support from qualified health care providers. The staff member is self-isolating at home. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families. We are doing COVID-19 testing at Eastgate for the virus with all Residents and staff next Tuesday, June 2, 2020.

To prevent further spread of the disease, Eastgate Manor continues to take the following measures:

Facilitating a deep clean of the entire facility, including all common areas

  • Restricting visitor access to the center
  • Screening all providers and staff members for symptoms such as fever daily before entering the building
  • We are closely monitoring all residents for symptoms or change in condition

We are coordinating our efforts with the McHenry County Department of Health to promptly identify and monitor individuals who have had recent contact with our COVID-19 positive individual to prevent further spread within our facility and community. We will contact you if your loved one is suspected or diagnosed with COVID-19.

We are committed to providing you with a safe and healthy environment. Please feel free to call with any questions.

Sincerely,

Jason Benedict
