Campus Health Update

This Campus Health Status will be updated whenever we have new information to share.

UPDATED May 16, 2022 -- One resident and one staff have Covid-19.

Carol Woods and its Board of Directors have made the Covid-19 vaccine mandatory for all staff. Staff needed to complete their vaccination by Sept. 24, 2021 to continue employment. The only exceptions were employees with approved, written medical or religious exemptions.  We have 99% of residents and staff vaccinated. Residents received their booster shot the week of Nov. 1, 2021 and will get their second Booster in April.

Before a vaccine was available o the public, four residents of the Health Center had tested positive for Covid and were moved to our isolation cluster. These were the first resident cases of Covid on campus. Two of the four residents recovered and returned home. Two residents were in the end stages of their lives when they tested positive and died.

In the time since the vaccine was available up until now, 15 independent living residents and six residents in higher levels of support tested positive for Covid.
