Dear Family Members and Adocates,
You may have heard that the Louisiana Department of Health recently conducted COVID 19 testing in all nursing homes. They are now moving into a second phase of testing which includes all community home residents and staff members.
The Department has contracted with Ochsner to provide free COVID 19 tests to all residents and staff members who have never tested positive for COVID 19.  Ochsner will be here this Friday, July 31st at 8:30 to begin testing. They will be administering a saliva swab test – nothing going into the nose. 
At this time we have no residents who are showing signs or symptoms of COVID 19, so we are optimistic that results will be negative.  If your loved one happens to test positive, you will be notified as soon as we receive that result.
Again, I want to thank everyone for your support and patience.  We have created a plan to phase-in on site visitation and home leave, which will be issued to all when it is safe to start. 
Sending you all well wishes,

Jennifer Hebert
Executive Director
