LEVINDALE: COVID-19

STATEMENT FROM LIFEBRIDGE HEALTH:
 
LEVINDALE: COVID-19 – April 1, 2020
 
The care and safety of our patients, residents and staff is always our top priority.
 
Levindale is a unique facility that offers several types of care, including a long-term residential facility, sub-acute rehabilitation and a specialty hospital, which includes a high-intensity care unit.
 
As of today, we have four confirmed cases of COVID-19: one patient in the specialty hospital and three on our sub-acute rehab unit.  From day one, our staff has been following protocols and appropriate precautions in caring for them. We have one staff member who has tested positive and who is recovering at home in quarantine.
 
There are currently no positive COVID-19 cases in residents of the long-term care facility. 
 
Since the Governor’s March 10 directive, there have been no visitors at Levindale.  We have been screening and taking temperatures of employees as they report to work since early March and are working with our infection prevention teams and following CDC and Maryland Department of Health guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
