McGregor COVID-19 Update

 This statement is from Ann Conn, President, and CEO, McGregor Foundation


May 26, 2020

Since learning of the global COVID-19 threat, McGregor has been determined to do all we can to protect the health of our residents and team members. On March 25th, we received confirmation of a resident who had tested positive for COVID-19 at the Gardens of McGregor and Amasa Stone. Subsequently, we have learned of two other residents and two staff members who have tested positive for COVID-19. We have contacted our local health department and are working closely with them to ensure that we are taking every necessary precaution for both residents and teams across all five McGregor campuses. Today, we are admitting one resident who will be recovering in our COVID isolation unit. Otherwise, we are not aware of any other residents or team members at McGregor who has been diagnosed with COVID-19. We will continue to update our website with any new information concerning any new cases of the disease.

We will continue the increased safety measures at all McGregor locations which we began shortly after we learned of the coronavirus threat.

These follow the CDC’s guidelines for Preventing the Spread of COVID-19 in Healthcare Facilities: 

• All employees are screened for temperature and symptoms at the beginning of work shifts.

• All employees are wearing masks while in the building

• Employees with symptoms are asked to self-quarantine at home and immediately contact a physician.

• No visitors are allowed into the buildings.

• All residents are receiving daily health screenings to quickly identify any change of condition within our health areas.

We have been and will continue to be, vigilant with infection control protective measures for all residents and employees in order to protect our campus. Our community is like family, and we all share the concern about each other during this time. Our hearts and prayers are with the affected residents and their families.
