These weekly updates are given primarily to highlight incidences of COVID-19 infection among residents and staff at each community. For residents, this information presents active cases, as well as cumulative cases over time. These figures are inclusive of all known cases of COVID-19 among PCSC residents, regardless of where they tested positive or where the resident may have acquired an infection. For staff, this information indicates new cases since the last update. We will share other new and noteworthy developments for the organization as they occur.
The SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) has issued guidelines for outdoor and indoor visitation for skilled nursing and assisted living residents. While all of our communities are working toward visitation as allowed by DHEC, please know that the ability to conduct visits depends on a variety of factors. These include the incidence of COVID-19 cases among residents and staff in those areas, COVID-19 infection rates in the county, and the availability of staff to support visits. This means that visitation practices may vary across our communities at any given point in time. It also may mean that visitations at any particular community may have to be halted with little or no advance warning. It is important, therefore, that families stay in close touch with the particular community where their loved one resides.
Our communities are communicating regularly with residents and family members about updates to current practices on their campuses. If you have questions about a particular location, please be in touch with that community.
Please remember our residents and staff in your prayers. Please click on link for https://g5-assets-cld-res.cloudinary.com/image/upload/v1603477657/g5/g5-c-iqbe5yal-presbyterian-communities-of-south-carolina-client/g5-cl-57b5xo6w8-corporate/uploads/Covid_tallies_by_community_10.23.2020_gw4fr7.pdf
