Statement from Life Care Center of Casper regarding COVID-19


Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation in Casper, WY

Updated: Friday, May 22, 6:30 a.m. MDT

At Life Care Center of Casper, residents are – and have always been – our highest priority.

We are working closely with the Wyoming Department of Health, the Agency for Health Care Administration and the Natrona County Department of Health to ensure we are taking the appropriate steps at this time. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, we have been following the latest guidelines, from both state and federal authorities, including the CDC.

Our primary concern is for the health and safety of our residents, nursing staff and other care providers. They are on the front line of this unprecedented outbreak. Our staff is trained in proper use of PPEs and are following all relevant guidelines in infection control. They are putting in heroic efforts to ensure that our patients are receiving excellent care.

We'll continue to provide regular updates to loved ones and to state and local officials. Here are the latest details from our facility:

  • One resident has tested positive for COVID-19 and is receiving care in a local hospital.
  • On Thursday, May 21, the Natrona County Department of Health conducted 100% testing of our residents and associates. We’re honored to have their support and will continue partnering with them as we receive results and move forward caring for our residents.
  • If a resident tests positive, he or she will be placed in isolation in our building. If an associate tests positive, he or she will recover at home and only return to work when CDC guidelines for returning to work are met.
  • We stay in consistent communication with families and always welcome their questions and contact. Even though our visitation remains restricted, we're happy to coordinate phone calls, video chats or window visits.
