Claremont Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (CNRC) recently announced that due to an employee testing positive for COVID-19, visitation has been closed to family and all vendors. The staff member who tested positive was asymptomatic and is isolating at home. This brings the total number of staffers to 12, and two residents who have tested positive since the pandemic began. Universal testing will be conducted on Sept. 15, 16, and 17 for all residents and staff.
The facility is working with the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s Epidemiologist to conduct universal testing for the virus.
Claremont has returned to the non-opened stage, and will slowly reopen as guidelines permit, moving through each required phase of re-opening. Claremont continues to follow CDC and the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s COVID-19 guidelines for its residents and employees.
