We want to provide an update on COVID-19 and its impact within our Abbey Delray South community. We learned late Monday, May 25, that a Health Center resident tested positive for COVID-19. This resident is no longer being cared for in our community, and there are no active resident cases of the virus in our community at this time.
We continue to work closely with the Florida Department of Health – Palm Beach County, and the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). Our team, in partnership with these health organizations, will be testing additional residents and team members for the virus and will communicate more details as we have them.
We must remain vigilant in protecting our community against the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, please continue to stay in your homes, practice social distancing if you must venture out for essential items, wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitizer. In addition, we ask that you wear a mask when you leave your home or the Abbey Delray South campus. If you have left the campus, please proceed to the community location for the appropriate screening process including a temperature check upon your return. All residents must adhere to the screening process when they return to the community.
As a reminder, Lifespace and Abbey Delray South are continuing to follow heightened infection control guidelines. We encourage everyone to only leave the community for essential needs like groceries or critical medical appointments, practice social distancing and proper hand hygiene. As we have done throughout the last several weeks, we will regularly communicate updates about our efforts to maintain a safe and healthy community.
Please contact your Abbey Delray South management team with questions and concerns.
Thank you for your continued support.
