COVID-19 False Positive Test

May 19, 2020

 

Residents, Families and Partners,

Park Place Assisted Living is pleased to report that we have no known cases of COVID-19 in our facility.

In our communication last week, we noted that we had performed COVID-19 testing on a random sampling of our residents and that one had tested positive for COVID-19. The result was surprising because the resident had no symptoms, had not left the community for several weeks, and was the only positive test result. We also noted that the resident would be retested.

We have now retested the resident twice and both tests came back negative for COVID-19. It appears that the prior test was a false positive and there are not, and never were, any COVID-19 cases at Park Place. We are relieved that our careful and diligent infection control precautions have been effective.

Please reach out with questions, concerns, or requests for assistance.  We will keep you updated as additional information becomes available.

We will keep you updated as conditions develop.

Sincerely,

Jeanne Bishop-Parise
Executive Director
