Life Care Center of Hilo has remained committed to infection control throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. In the fall of 2020, we fought the pandemic in our building. Our staff and residents were courageous, and we are thankful to have been COVID-free since November 2020.
Unfortunately, we had an associate test positive on July 21, 2021.
While we are saddened to have new COVID-19 cases, we are confident that our high vaccination statistics and stringent infection protocol measures will continue to serve us well.
Results will be communicated openly and honestly. Our residents are also monitored multiple times day and night for any symptoms or concerns. We continue to screen every associate for signs and symptoms (including temperature checks and other screening questions) when they arrive for work and when they leave.
We appreciate our staff’s dedication and continuing focus on infection control, safety and the peace of mind for the more than 200 residents we serve. We also appreciate the continued support of our healthcare and government partners.
