Visitation status is subject to change based on County positivity rate and COVID-19 status in the facility.
We are continuing to watch trends in the Oshkosh community, Wisconsin, and surrounding states. Please remain vigilant and continue to use caution with visitation to keep our residents, staff, and visitors safe. According to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) data, there is still moderate to substantial community transmission throughout the state of Wisconsin. Over the last several weeks we have seen a slight but steady rise in county positivity rates and there are two counties in Wisconsin that are back above 10% positivity rate. Very high numbers are also being reported in Minnesota and Michigan. The vaccine is only one step in reducing COVID rates and keeping people safe.
Per guidance, once you are vaccinated you still need to practice normal pandemic behavior. Here is why:
– In the short run, it takes several weeks after getting the vaccine before it builds-up a protective immune response in your body. Until then, you are still vulnerable to get sick from the COVID-19 virus.
– For those who are vaccinated and do not get sick, we don’t know yet if some virus particles can survive and reproduce in your body that you might to spread to others when you breathe, cough, or sneeze.
– Because the virus is still spreading, it is especially important to wear a mask and continue physical distancing to protect yourself and your family.
We continue to be grateful for your patience and support. Please continue to check back for ongoing updates.
