Dear Resident and Relative,
Since our last communication, COVID-19 weekly serial testing was undertaken in Brídhaven on Monday 1 March. All residents and staff members swabbed have tested as NOT DETECTED for COVID-19.
COVID-19 is still active in the community and therefore we will continue to be guided by the advices of the HSE, HIQA and the Department of Public Health. However, there continues to be evidence emerging that the vaccination of residents and staff is having a positive effect on reducing the transmission of COVID-19 and in providing residents with a level of protection. We are very conscious of the importance of opening the nursing home to visitors as soon as it is safe to do so. We are liaising with the appropriate authorities in relation to this. A communication will issue in relation to the visitors’ policy once clarity has been obtained.
Once again, we thank you for your continued understanding and support.
