From the President/CEO

February 26, 2021

Dear Friends,

The Jefferson County COVID-19 positivity rate has decreased again to 7.5% and our county’s rating continues to be “yellow”.  It is our pleasure to share good news with you that for the fourth week in a row we did not have any positive cases reported from testing. Even though, residents and staff are feeling more confident we must remain diligent in our processes of using masks, washing hands, and using PPE.

The first dose of the vaccine was administered on December 30 to healthcare staff and residents. Walgreens returned on January 20th to administer their second dose and the first dose for others. All residents and staff have been offered the vaccine and those that accepted have now had both doses as of Wednesday, February 10th. Several new residents and staff members had the added opportunity to receive their first shot on February 10th and will receive their second vaccine on Wednesday, March 3rd.

Key information:

  • The positive rate in Jefferson County has decreased to 7.5%
  • The positivity rate in Jefferson County remains “yellow”.
  • All residents and staff tested negative for the fourth week in a row!
  • Martin’s continues to receive updates from the CDC and CMS on a regular basis.
  • Visits will begin soon as we work on plans and protocols. We appreciate your patience.
  • The Arbors dining room has reopened with four residents per table.
  • The vaccine was administered to The Arbors, Woodside and Evergreen residents and staff on Wednesday, January 20th. The booster shot was given February 10th.
  • Regardless of accepting the vaccine, we are asking all residents and staff to please be diligent about wearing a mask over mouth and nose, practicing social distance, avoiding crowds and washing hands.

Should you wish to drop supplies for a resident, you may do so at the security gate. We suggest nonperishable items only to avoid spoilage.

In closing, thanks to those of you who have shared encouragement and prayers for not only your loved ones but the St. Martin’s family as well.  We find meaning in your support and are so grateful.

In perseverance,

Carol M. Holzman

President & CEO
