Lyngblomsten's Communication Policy during COVID-19 Response
Lyngblomsten is committed to communicating openly with its residents, tenants, their families, staff, and other groups as part of our response to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
As always, Lyngblomsten is committed to being transparent. This is a high priority for us because older adults and their families are putting their trust in us to make the best decisions we can to keep people on our campus safe and healthy.
As updates have become available during our COVID-19 response, we have reached out through phone calls, letters, emails, social media, and our website, and we will continue to do so.
In accord with guidelines from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), we are informing care center residents and their family members/representatives of positive COVID-19 test results, as well as the numbers of pending tests and cumulative test results, within the time period specified by CMS. We continue to notify all other appropriate individuals—including tenants, their family members/representatives, employees, and vendors—of developments as they arise.
In the event of a positive COVID-19 test result, we will notify all appropriate individuals as quickly as possible.
The health and safety of the people living and working on our campus is our top priority, and so we will continue to keep the Lyngblomsten community informed of any developments regarding COVID-19.
