COVID-19 Update:

Merrill Gardens at Anthem

Update:  May 28

We have now tested all residents and the majority of our team members for CODI-19, with the exception of one team member out on vacation, and we will test that individual when they return to work. We have the results from the 135 resident and team member tests and we are pleased to report they have all come back negative. We are still waiting on the results from a handful of tests and we will report those results as soon as they are available.

We are also happy to report that no residents or team members are reporting any symptoms.  

As you know, we have been operating under our Enhanced Resident Protection Protocol and that will continue.  As a reminder, visitors are not allowed at the community, the dining room remains closed and residents remain in their apartments during this time.  We will continue checking residents and team members for fever symptoms each day and it is important that residents or team members alert us immediately if they are feeling ill. 

Update:  May 19

We want to let you know that a resident at the community has tested positive for COVID-19.  This individual is receiving care away from the community and I am sure you will join us in wishing them well.  It is important to note that there are no other residents and no team members who have tested positive for the virus.  We are in touch with anyone who might have interacted with the affected resident. 

We are continuing to do additional deep sanitation throughout the community, and we are also bringing in SERVPRO to sanitize in the resident’s apartment and the community common areas.  SERVPRO specializes in health care sanitation and decontamination services using EPA approved methods in alignment with protocols set by the Centers for Disease Control. 

As an added precaution, we will be testing all residents and team members for the virus. The testing is being conducted by Target1 Medical at the community.
