To: All family members of a current Resident at St. Martin's and to our friends
As we end another week of facing the COVID-19 virus, we have received more than half of the results of the COVID testing for this week and so far all are negative. We will keep you updated as needed. We
assure you that all of us at St. Martin's Home remains vigilant in our precautions as we care for your
loved ones. We continue to closely follow the guidelines of Governor Hogan, the Maryland Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and CMS, and we implement these guidelines as each
recommendation is given.
To align with the directives, St. Martin's Home remains on lockdown and our one employee who tested positive for the coronavirus twice tested negative and is now allowed to return to work. Please know we understand the importance of connecting with your family member, especially during stressful and uncertain times. Even though we cannot provide a space for in-person interaction, the communication between family and friends and Residents will not come to an end. We encourage you to maintain the connection through technology. Telephone calls, FaceTime, Skype, Zoom and other platforms are available along with window visits. We appreciate your cooperation in the best interest of everyone's safety. We are all in this together and our objective is to keep everyone safe.
A new normal is taking place at St. Martin's Home as our Activities department continues to flex their creativity by adapting to individual and televised activities. The Little Sisters and their medical staff make sure our Residents don't feel the loneliness that sometimes accompanies times of isolation.
Please join us in prayer for the recovery of those who are sick, for the strength of healthcare workers and caregivers, for those who have died and for an end to this health crisis. Please be assured of our prayers for all of you and know that we are here for you.
St. Joseph, intercede for all who lovingly tend the sick and give them comfort, care and support in their hour of need.
Mother Joseph Caroline
