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 two of our staff at Eastgate Manor have tested positive for COVID-19. Their last days worked were Sunday May 9th and Wednesday May 13th. At this time, a total of two residents and two staff have tested positive for the virus. We also have one staff member who is a Person Under Investigation (PUI) with COVID-like symptoms. Test results are pending. We are following IDPH and CDC protocols before the residents and staff return to the building. The Residents are currently in the hospital receiving support of qualified health care providers. The staff members are self-isolating at home. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families.

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
  • Continued visitor restriction to the center
  • Continued 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

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 individuals 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,
