FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Magnolia Manor COVID-19 update

Magnolia Manor Home Office, Americus, GA, January 27, 2021Magnolia Manor President and CEO Mark R. Todd reports that COVID community infection rates continue to climb in Glynn, Liberty, Marion, Muscogee and Sumter Counties. Bibb, Bryan, Camden and Colquitt Counties remain high, but have not increased during the last two weeks reporting period. As a result of these high infection rates, Magnolia Manor has also seen a spike in positive test results for both residents and employees.

“The positivity rates at Magnolia Manor have spiked again, which is indicative of what is happening across communities at the local, state and national levels. Despite our continuing efforts to safeguard not only our residents but also our employees from being infected, we are experiencing positive test results”.

While most of our campuses report no active COVID-19 cases in the past two weeks, the Americus Nursing Center had 2 residents and 1 employee test positive. The Marion County campus has 1 employee who tested positive while the Midway facility in Liberty County also reported 1 employee tested positive. Macon had 7 residents who tested positive. Unfortunately, our Columbus campus had large breakouts with Columbus Assisted Living reporting 1 resident, Columbus East reported 12 residents and 5 employees and Columbus West has suffered the most with 60 residents and 25 employees reporting with positive results.

“This is very discouraging to everyone. We have worked hard to provide and protect not only our residents but also our staff through testing, the use of PPE, and now with vaccine clinics and immunization.”

The vaccines continue to be the most important tool we have right now to curb the outbreaks with residents and staff, along with limiting community exposures by limiting personal visitation, wearing masks at all times, handwashing and wearing PPE. Magnolia Manor is committed to continue to use all of these measures at all times, but we need your help. Everyone can by getting the vaccine when they are available, wearing a mask when in public, washing your hands regularly and by supporting the healthcare community at every opportunity.

 

Magnolia Manor Vaccine Clinic Schedules for each facility are as follows:

1.27.21-2 CHARTS

Magnolia Manor continues to follow all guidelines recommended by the CDC, CMS and the Georgia Department of Public Health.
