As our nation  faces the COVID-19 pandemic, St. Anne’s Retirement Community  has implemented precautionary measures, including closing our campus to visitors as well as daily temperature readings and symptom checks for staff, as we strive to prevent the spread of the virus. 

Please view the information below for our latest COVID-19 updates. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

July 28, 2020
At this time, St. Anne’s has no new cases of COVID-19. We completed our third round of testing on July 24, 2020. We are waiting for those results. The results from our second round of testing from July 16 were negative. Hopefully we will have negative results from last week’s round of testing and we will not have to do further testing at this time.

We continue following directives from our Medical Director, Department of Health, CDC and CMS as well as local and state officials. Our admission process and screening processes remain the same. Hand washing, wearing of masks, frequent cleaning of surfaces and eye protection for staff are still our best defense against this virus.

Because of the directive from the DOH, any individual who travels to a “hot spot or area of increased COVID-19 activity, should consider self-quarantining for 14 (fourteen) days after return to home. Also, any residential resident who travels to a state currently on the Department of Health Travel Restriction List should also consider self-quarantining for 14 (fourteen) days after returning to Pennsylvania. This list has been updated from Friday, July 24. The current list includes Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming. Please remember to check the DOH website frequently as that list can change:

https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/disease/coronavirus/Pages/Travelers.aspx

The SARC COVID-19 telephone announcement is updated at least every Tuesday. That number is 717-285-0946. This number is an announcement type message meaning you can listen but there is NO option to leave a message.

Dr. Spicher’s presentation from July 21 can be found below.

Please remember that even though Lancaster is in the green phase of re-opening, we will not begin a re-opening process until we have 2 (two) negative team and resident results spaced 1 (one) week apart. We will then be able to consider moving forward with the process for re-opening some of the restrictions of our campus. Our goal continues to be the safety and well-being of our residents and staff.

Thank you for helping to keep our community safe. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 717-285-5443 and the receptionist can direct you to the appropriate personnel.
Thank you,
Mary Turnbaugh, President

July 14, 2020

As shared in our previous letter from July 9, St. Anne’s has completed our first round of required universal testing in accordance with the Department of Health requirements. We have NO positive residents at this time. We do have 4 asymptomatic (no symptoms) positive staff members. We have notified all 4 (four) staff members and they are following the Department of Heath requirements for a self-quarantine regime. They have been wearing their mask and eye protection while on campus per Department of Health guidelines.

Because of the Department of Health requirements, we will have to test ALL staff and skilled and personal care residents weekly until we have two consecutive weeks without a positive case. We will have our next round of testing next Wednesday and Thursday, July 15 and 16. We will then have a second round of testing on Thursday and Friday, July 23 and 24. Hopefully both those rounds of testing will be negative and we will not have to do further testing at this time.

The consents that were already signed will be sufficient for future testing. If you have a concern about future testing for yourself or a loved one, please notify the appropriate department manager to share your concerns.

We continue following directives from our Medical Director, Department of Health, CDC and CMS as well as local and state officials. Our admission process and screening processes remain the same. Hand washing, wearing of masks, frequent cleaning of surfaces and eye protection for staff are still our best defense against this virus.

Because of the newest directive from the DOH, any staff member or residential resident who travels to a “hot spot or area of increased COVID-19 activity, should consider self-quarantining for 14 (fourteen) days after return to home. Also, any staff or independent living resident who travels to a state currently on the Department of Health Travel Restriction List should also self-quarantine for 14 (fourteen) days after returning to Pennsylvania. Staff have two other options upon returning home from a “hot spot” or restricted state. Please remember to check the DOH website frequently as that list can change:

https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/disease/coronavirus/Pages/Travelers.aspx

The SARC COVID-19 telephone announcement is updated at least every Tuesday. That number is 717-285-0946. This number is an announcement type message meaning you can listen but there is NO option to leave a message.

 Date Change: Dr. Spicher will have an update on COVID-19 on July 21 at 1:30pm. The presentation will be recorded and uploaded to our website afterwards and the presentation will be televised on our in-house channel.

Please remember that even though Lancaster is in the green phase of re-opening, our process is very different. Our restrictions will remain until we have 2 (two) negative team and resident results spaced 1 (one) week apart. At that time, we will be able to consider moving forward with the process for re-opening some restrictions of our campus. We have begun lifting some restrictions for our independent residents, but not for personal care or skilled residents. Our goal is and will always be the safety and well-being of our residents and staff.

Thank you for helping to keep our community safe. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 717-285-5443 and the receptionist can direct you to the appropriate personnel.

June 30, 2020

Our guidance at St. Anne’s continues to come from our Medical Director, DOH, CDC and CMS as well as local and state officials. We are still testing skilled (SNF) and personal care (PC) residents if they show symptoms. Residential living residents are to self-quarantine if there is an exposure and they are to reach out to their physician if they want to be tested because of an exposure or active symptoms. All new skilled and personal care admissions are required to have a negative test result prior to entering our campus and are quarantined for 14 days as well as being quarantined for 14 days if they leave the campus for a medical or emergency visit. Our staff is checked prior to and at the end of each shift for symptoms. If a staff member has an exposure outside of work, they are to self-quarantine and see their physician for testing as appropriate. We maintain our restrictions for visitors and continue our screening process for those who do enter our campus. Hand washing, wearing of masks and frequent cleaning of surfaces is still our best defense against this virus. We maintain our pledge to protect our residents and staff and keep exposures to a minimum.   

We still do not have any positive cases of COVID-19 on campus. The DOH has mandated that all facilities must have staff and skilled residents tested by July 24, 2020. We have signed an agreement with Clarity Lab Services. They will be onsite July 2, 3 and 23 to perform the testing for us. We will be testing skilled and personal care residents as well as team members. Any residents and staff that have been tested after May 24, will not have to be retested. Everyone will be receiving a consent form that will need to be completed prior to your test date. Staff will be tested on July 2 and 23 while SNF and PC residents will be tested on July 3.  

Our inhouse channel 95 or 956 provides notices of daily happenings on our campus to help residents stay involved and many of our programs are now through those channels. Activities is doing a wonderful job in offering events and productions throughout the campus. For our skilled and personal care residents we are still offering video chats with family as well as window visits with family.  Scheduling for all visits is coordinated through the Social Services department.

The café and bistro continue offering take-out meals for independent residents to take back to their apartment/cottage. St. Anne’s grocery program for weekly ordering from our food service vendor and/or our staff grocery delivery service remains as an option.  

This telephone announcement is updated every Tuesday. This is an announcement only which means you can listen but there is NO option to leave a message.

Dr. Spicher will have an update on COVID-19 on July 7 at 1:30 pm. The presentation will be recorded and uploaded to our website afterwards and the presentation will be televised on our in-house channel.

We also have several articles as well as links to other websites for you to visit on our website. 

Lancaster became “green” on June 26, but our restrictions will remain for at least 28 days from that date. We have begun lifting some restrictions for our independent residents, but not for personal care or skilled residents. Local, State and Federal government guidelines regarding lessening of restrictions for skilled and personal care residents should be released within the next several weeks. Once we have their guidelines, SARC will begin a process for loosening restrictions. Our goal is and will always be the safety and well-being of our residents and staff. 

Thank you for helping to keep our community safe. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.


June 16, 2020

St. Anne’s continues to follow guidelines set by our Medical Director, DOH, CDC and CMS as well as local and state officials. Our current process for residents and staff is for an individual to be tested if they show symptoms. All new admissions are required to have a negative test result prior to entering our campus and are quarantined for 14 days as well as being quarantined for 14 days if they leave the campus for a medical or emergency visit. We maintain our restrictions for visitors and continue our screening process for those who do enter our campus. Hand washing, wearing of masks and frequent cleaning of surfaces is still our best defense against this virus. We are still doing our best to protect our residents and staff and keep exposures to a minimum.   

While we currently do not have any positive cases of COVID-19 on campus, the DOH has decided that all facilities must have staff and skilled residents tested by July 24. We are currently working on how this process will unfold. We have evaluated several laboratory services and are close to deciding on a partner for this event. Any residents and staff that have been tested after May 24, will not have to be retested. Once we have signed with a lab company, we will begin notifying staff and residents with details on the roll out of the testing. There will be consent forms for both residents/Power of Attorneys (POA) and staff. 

Our in house channel 95 or 956 provides notices of daily happenings on our campus to help residents stay involved and many of our programs are now through those channels. Activities is doing a wonderful job in offering events and productions throughout the campus. For our skilled and personal care residents we are still offering video chats with family as well as window visits with family.  Scheduling for all visits is coordinated through the Social Services department.

The café and bistro continue offering take-out meals for independent residents to take back to their apartment or cottage. St. Anne’s grocery program for weekly ordering from our food service vendor and/or our staff grocery delivery service remains as an option.  

Please remember we have a SARC COVID-19 telephone announcement that is updated every Tuesday. That number is 717-285-0946. This number is an announcement type message meaning you can listen but there is NO option to leave a message.

There are several blog articles for you to read found here https://www.stannesrc.org/blog/as well as links to other websites for more information

Lancaster is not yet in the green phase, but as we have stated before: our restrictions will NOT lift even when Lancaster is green. We will begin loosening some of the restrictions for our independent residents, but not for personal care or skilled residents. We will announce our process for lifting limitations as we move forward in the upcoming weeks and months. We are still awaiting guidelines on how that process will be implemented but our goal is and will always be the safety and well-being of our residents and staff.

Thank you for helping to keep our community safe. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

All counties in PA should be either yellow or green by June 5. This does NOT mean our restrictions will lift at that time. We will announce our process for lifting limitations as we move forward in the upcoming months. Our new normal will look much different than pre-pandemic. We are still awaiting guidelines on how that process will be implemented but please know our goal is and will continue to be the safety and well-being of our residents and staff. At this time, we will proceed as we have been with our limitations and restrictions.

We continue to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We have been testing residents per our COVID-19 guidelines and in conjunction with our Medical Director. We quarantine all new admissions as well as anyone leaving the building for an appointment for 14 days. We also require new admissions to have a negative COVID-19 test prior to being admitted to our campus. We have also followed our guidelines with staff; sending some home for follow-up and/or testing. To date our campus continues to be negative. We continue to monitor information from the CDC, PA Dept of Health, and our Medical Director, to protect our community from infection. We maintain our restrictions for visitors and continue our screening process for those who do enter our campus. Our practices of staff and residents masking, clean surfaces frequently, and practice good hand hygiene are on-going. While these restrictions are very limiting, we must stay the course through this pandemic.  

Our in house channel 95 or 956 provides notices of daily happenings on our campus to help residents stay involved and many of our programs are now through those channels. Activities is doing a wonderful job in offering events and productions throughout the campus. For our skilled and personal care residents we are still offering video chats with family as well as window visits with family.  Scheduling for all visits is coordinated through the Social Services department. Election services will not be held at St. Anne’s on June 2 per Lancaster County. Residents are asked to complete the mail-in ballot, social services is available for assistance.

While the state of PA continues to loosen restrictions in counties, our process for lifting limitations will be much slower as our campus must do what we can to keep the virus out and our residents and staff safe during the re-opening process. At this time, we have no immediate plans to release any guidelines that are currently in place. 

Thank you for helping to keep our community safe. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

We continue to monitor the ever-changing Coronavirus pandemic. We want to keep you apprised of our current situation at St. Anne’s. We remain covid negative at this time. We follow directions of the CDC, PA Dept of Health, and our Medical Director, to protect our community from infection. Dr Spicher has reminded us, that this means we must limit the people who enter our campus, screen everyone for symptoms of COVID-19, and remind anyone who is sick to stay home. Everyone must wear a mask, clean surfaces frequently, and practice good hand hygiene. Our efforts to “flatten the curve” are successful, but we don’t know how long the virus will linger. Though it is difficult, we must not let down our guard.

Our campus remains under restricted visitation, only compassionate care visitation by clergy/immediate family members is permitted.  Anyone dropping items off or picking up items for residents must Drop Off or Pick Up at the Apartment Building or Main Receptionist: Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 am-3 pm. We screen all persons entering a campus building, requiring a daily temp check and completion of questionnaire at time of entry, and a second temp check when leaving the building. Anyone with a fever is sent home. Everyone working, or visiting, on campus must wear a mask.

In addition to video chats with family, we have added the opportunity for residents in skilled care and personal care to have window visits with family. Residents are seated at a glass door/window inside the facility and family meet outside the door/window. They are able to see each other and converse by telephone. Scheduling for all visits is coordinated through the Social Services department.

While the state of PA is preparing to re-open counties, please know that we will be following Dr. Spicher, Department of Health and our own administration guidelines when preparing to loosen restrictions. Please know that our goal is to keep residents and staff safe during the re-opening process. This means, we will release restrictions much slower than the government.

Election services will not be held at St. Anne’s on June 2 per Lancaster County. Residents are asked to complete the mail-in ballot, social services is available for assistance. For this election, the voting machines will be at West Hempfield Municipal Building.

In recognition of our staff and their tireless efforts during this time, we will be ringing our chapel bell; every Sunday at 7 pm.

April 28, 2020
To Residents and Family members,
As you know, we continue to be in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic. We want to keep you updated during this difficult time. This is an evolving situation, but this is what is current today.
We are thankful to report we do not have any cases here at St Anne’s Retirement Community, though the virus continues to spread in our surrounding community. We follow directions of the CDC, PA Dept of Health, and our Medical Director, to protect our community from infection. Dr Spicher has reminded us, that this means we must limit the people who enter our campus, screen everyone for symptoms of COVID-19, and remind anyone who is sick to stay home. Everyone must wear a mask, clean surfaces frequently, and practice good hand hygiene. Our efforts to “flatten the curve” are successful, but we don’t know how long the virus will linger. Though it is difficult, we must not let down our guard.

Our campus remains under restricted visitation, only compassionate care visitation by clergy/immediate family members is permitted.  Pharmacy and Postal Services deliveries occur only at both reception desks. Anyone dropping items off or picking up items for residents must Drop Off or Pick Up at the Apartment Building or Main Receptionist: Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 am-3 pm. We screen all persons entering a campus building, requiring a daily temp check and completion of questionnaire at time of entry, and a second temp check when leaving the building. Anyone with a fever is sent home. Everyone working, or visiting, on campus must wear a mask.

In addition to video chats with family, we have added the opportunity for residents in skilled care and personal care to have window visits with family. Residents are seated at a glass door/window inside the facility and family meet outside the door/window. They are able to see each other and converse by telephone. Scheduling for all visits is coordinated through the Social Services department.

We monitor temperature and oxygen levels on all skilled nursing residents every shift and assess for virus symptoms. We screen all new admissions and do not admit to skilled unit unless a COVID-19 test was performed and results were negative. A wing on first floor skilled has been designated as an area where new admissions can be cared for, and observed for 14 days prior to transferring to another bed in skilled care. Certain staff have been trained to care for a COVID positive resident in a special area of this wing if needed. For all personal care residents, temps and oxygen levels are checked daily and checked for virus symptoms.  PPE (personal protective equipment: masks, gloves, isolation gowns, face shields) continues to be in short supply, and we are being prudent with our supplies. However, we do have what we need in order to keep both our staff and our residents safe. Our independent residents are asked to stay in their units and wear a mask when it is necessary to leave their unit. The café is only open for take-out and the Bistro is closed except for Grab & Go available daily from 9 am-11 am. We have grocery orders from our supplier and continue to make grocery runs weekly.

The PA Dept of Health provides daily updates about COVID-19 in PA, at health.pa.gov.  Our in-house channel 95 or 956 provides notices of daily events on our campus to help you stay involved in campus life.
