Four staff members on the Evergreen campus have tested positive for COVID-19. Each person is currently under quarantine at home. We are following guidance issued by public health and the CDC to safely manage the situation and people who have come into contact with a person have been notified. At this time no residents have tested positive.
Staff will continue to complete symptom screening before each shift and we are following state guidance for on-going staff testing. Staff impacted by COVID-19 are following quarantine guidelines and will return to work when they are cleared by Evergreen’s Infection Control Preventionist.
Due to these positive test results, all visitation in the Garden Building and the Creekview Health Center has been suspended until further notice.
Please remember that we are bound by federal guidelines under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which protects the privacy of our resident and staff. As always, our residents and staff remain our first priority, thank you for your continued support.

With direction from the Department of Quality Assurance, routine testing has resumed in the health center and all residents results have been negative. Two staff members have tested positive and are quarantined at home. We are following guidance issued by public health and the CDC to safely manage the situation.

Evergreen will be offering flu shots again this year for residents. We anticipate the vaccines will arrive at Evergreen the end of September and clinics will be scheduled once they are here. We are encouraging residents to get their flu shots as soon as possible. If you are able to get your shot elsewhere before the Evergreen clinics are scheduled, please do so.
