Covid-19 Protocol

May 27, 2022 – This page will be updated as the situation changes.

Shelby County Health Department is reporting a positivity rate of 11.3% the week ending 5/21/2022 which is up significantly from the previous week.  We continue to watch the trends in the positivity rate and adjust our policies as needed to meet conditions both at Trezevant and Shelby County.

Currently, there is one positive resident in Independent Living and one positive staff in Allen Morgan.

If you visit and test positive afterward, please contact us and provide who you visited and the date so we can monitor the resident(s) to ensure they are tested.

We test staff routinely, regardless of vaccination status, to ensure no asymptomatic employees are working.  The Wellness Clinic can test IL residents and the nursing staff of Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing monitor residents daily for any signs or symptoms of infection.

We test all impacted residents if they have been exposed to a covid+ staff or another resident.

We encourage everyone who has not been vaccinated or boosted to get the vaccine/booster.  Locations for vaccination sites can be found at this link:  COVID-19 Vaccine – Shelby Community

Vaccines and Boosters

The schedule for the next booster clinic is for residents and staff in the healthcare buildings:

06/16/2022 – Allen Morgan and Trezevant Terrace

You can also receive a booster shot at Walgreens, CVS, Kroger, the Shot Nurse, or Shelby County Health Department.

Masks

Masks are no longer required for residents, guests, or fully vaccinated staff in any of the Independent Living areas.

Masks are required in both healthcare buildings for non-healthcare residents (including IL residents coming over) 2+ years or older and staff (Allen Morgan and Terrace).
