Luther Special Care Home – Confirmed Outbreak

  • There are currently no active resident COVID-19 cases
  • There is currently one (1) active employee COVID-19 case

Nine (9) residents of Luther Special Care Home have passed away since the outbreak was declared on November 17th.  Families were provided end of life visitation opportunities and our sincere condolences go out to them.

We are pleased to report that all residents were classified as recovered as of December 20th, therefore no residents are considered as active cases related to the outbreak as of this date.  Twenty-six (26) staff of the home have tested positive for COVID-19 since the outbreak was declared.  All have been deemed recovered and have returned to work.

Since all residents on the outbreak unit were classified as recovered, one (1) resident has since passed away.  Our sincere condolences go out to the family.  The cause of death for any resident deaths reported through this update going forward may or may not be COVID related as the resident may never have contracted COVID-19 or their death may be due to other causes determined by their physician.

Management and staff of Luther Special Care Home continue to work diligently to contain the virus through extensive infection control protocols.  Visitation at Luther Special Care is being limited to end of life reasons only until further notice.
