December 17: COVID-19 Update
The New Homestead had a resident test positive for COVID-19, that resident has been moved to a dedicated COVID isolation unit. All other residents have been tested and are all negative. We will continue to monitor residents for any signs or symptoms; and they will be tested daily for the next seven days. All employees continue to wear the proper personal protective equipment while in the facility. We are working closely with the local public health department and have been in communication with the Iowa department of public health.
We will keep you updated of any changes.
