Covid-19 Protocol

September 22, 2020 – This page will be updated as the situation changes.

We want to ensure we keep you updated on the latest information regarding COVID-19 on Trezevant’s campus.  We had 3 vendors in Independent Living test positive for Covid-19.  In accordance with Health Department guidelines and out of an abundance of caution, there are 50 Independent Living residents in quarantine until they are tested Wednesday 9/23.  Once we have their results back we will provide an update.

Shelby County Health Department conducted an infection control survey Tuesday, September 8, 2020 and did not find any deficient practices.

We continue to test weekly the staff, contractors and vendors.  This ensures that we monitor and remove anybody who tests positive.

Staff

We are screening all staff to prevent exposing residents. Staff members are screened daily and are required to wear a mask anytime they are in public or around residents.  They are required to stay home if ill, especially with respiratory symptoms. Also, we require staff that travel to self-quarantine and then retest prior to returning to work.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this difficult time and determine how to best serve our community, while maintaining our focus where it belongs: on our residents and dedicated staff.

For general questions about COVID-19 you can call the Shelby County Health Department at 1-833-943-1658 or the TN Department of Health at 1-877-857-2945.
