COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 19) March Update- causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, pathology


MEDIA STATEMENT: March 13, 2020

Wellspring Lutheran Services is committed to helping contain the spread of COVID-19 by following guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The number one priority for Wellspring is the health and safety of our residents/clients, their families and our staff.

Our main focus is infection control and prevention. Wellspring already has excellent infection control measures in place, and we are redoubling those efforts. We have an emergency COVID-19 task force in place to provide leadership and direction across Michigan.

As a precaution, we have visitor restrictions in place at our skilled care facilities. The visitor protocol varies by location. And we have cancelled events and outings that may place our residents at an unnecessary risk of exposure to the virus.

In the event of a confirmed case within our facilities, we would continue to follow the guidelines provided by the CDC, as well as work with local and state health authorities.

With regard to our in-home services, we are taking precautionary measures by asking about health conditions, exposure and travel in the last 14 days.
