This Campus Health Status will be updated whenever we have new information to share.
UPDATED Oct. 11, 2021 -- 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 to continue employment. The only exceptions were employees with approved, written medical or religious exemptions. We took this step alongside multiple other health care systems and retirement communities. We now have 99% of residents and staff vaccinated.
From August 2020 through the end of 2020, 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 since the pandemic began. Two of the four residents recovered and returned home. Two residents were in the end stages of their lives when they tested positive and have since passed. The exact cause of death is undetermined.
Since July 2021 until now, three independent living residents tested positive for Covid.
A total of 48 staff have tested positive for Covid over the duration of the pandemic and have recovered.
