Austin Texas, March 15, 2021 – New Haven Texas, 10 assisted living and memory care communities located throughout Texas, continues to look forward to long-term protection with frequent COVID-19 testing for residents, staff, and essential caregivers effective March 8, 2021.
New Haven has partnered with a well-known Texas laboratory to provide supported testing services. Through this partnership, New Haven will receive support with COVID-19 testing including training, access to test kits, lab capacity and management of results via an online portal. All residents and essential caregivers will be tested once a month, and staff tested twice a month. This test will be a non-invasive nasal swab collected in the community by the Wellness Director, LVN. The swab is then mailed directly to the lab, where results will be obtained within 24 to 48 hours. Implementing testing and contact tracing to slow the spread of COVID-19 allows New Haven to quickly identify infections and provide residents, staff, and families with peace of mind.
“Being one of the first senior living communities to offer over 25 COVID vaccine clinics throughout our 10 Texas locations, we are excited to offer free COVID-19 testing so New Haven residents and staff can rest easily knowing they are living in the VERY safest place, said Tessa Wilson, Director of Operations at New Haven “I remain confident that the COVID-19 vaccines and testing will transform the healthcare industry so New Haven can continue to provide a safe place for our current and future residents.”
With the recent executive order issued by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, which went into effect March 10, 2021 relating to the opening of Texas business in response to the COVID-19 disaster, New Haven will continue following guidance from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding visitations, and infection control policies and practices.
New Haven continues to excel in all 10 of their communities by identifying different ways to keep current and future residents safe from exposure to COVID-19. The New Haven team understands families still have concerns about placing their loved one in senior living, and their ongoing commitment is to provide high-quality care in an environment that is safe for seniors.
