The FDA website says 2nd dose of Phizer COVID vaccine is expected to give a significant level of immunity starting 3 weeks AFTER 2nd shot.
We test staff and residents regularly. There are no known cases of COVID at our facilities.
We want to stay COVID free. We will continue to follow COVID prevention safety protocols (masks, social distancing, restricted visitation, etc) until COVID is over. We ask for your ongoing cooperation and understanding. Our safety policies have been effective, and will be even more effective after vaccine starts to provide significant partial immunity (3 weeks after 2nd shot).
Note: Vaccination is expected to provide significant partial immunity, not complete immunity. This is why we must continue good safety practices until COVID is over. Keeping your loved ones safe is our top priority.
We continue having many weekly activities, including arts and crafts, entertainment, and exercise classes (safely done). We are safely maintaining a good quality of life for residents.
Staff and residents are still enjoying life and having fun, as you can see in other posts.
We feel vaccination as soon as possible is very important and helpful for prevention.
Here are 5 informative videos on the topic.
Our maintenance man Armando worked hard and fast building a see through door to make Winter visits from family and friends comfortable for family members.
This plexiglass door allows family members to enter a vacant apartment where they can be indoors, warm and dry while safely visiting their senior relative(s) who will be on the other side of the door. Everyone on both sides of this visiting door will be warm and dry indoors this Winter while visiting.
Many other facilities don’t have something like this and so visitors must shiver in the rain and cold while visiting through an exterior Window, or they are allowed inside without this level of protection for seniors.
We wanted to make it comfortable for visitors in any weather and keep it fully safe for our seniors. This, along with our other safety measures have been working well. We recently tested everyone and all staff and residents still test negative for COVID.
With the cooperation of visitors we will continue to do everything possible to keep our staff and residents safe. The staff at Somerset Retirement Home and Assisted Living thanks all our wonderful visitors for your cooperation!
After our medical staff were done getting tested themselves, they then tested all other staff and residents with smiles and as much good cheer and fun as possible. We tried to make it as fun as possible for staff and residents while doing a careful job.
Everyone (staff and residents) tested negative! Hooray! Our careful precautions are continuing to work well. So far, no one has got COVID-19 at either of our buildings (Somerset or New Westside Terrace).
We will continue carefully taking precautions and we thank residents’ families and friends for your cooperation with our prevention measures. It is working! Let’s keep it going!
Our goal is for every resident and employee to stay healthy and safe until COVID is over (likely next summer). The cooperation of visitors helps make this possible.
Thank you from Somerset Retirement Home and Assisted Living Longview WA!
