MORA Update 8/6/2020

I hope everyone is having a Thankful Thursday.  Today I am thankful for the cooler weather!  A few updates ….

By the numbers: COVID-19 and MORA

We could have never imagined that we would still be “in the middle” of a global pandemic so many months after the first news of coronavirus. However, next week as our Board convenes, we share how Mount Olivet Rolling Acres, our clients and the communities we serve are doing amidst the statistics around the world.  To date, we have experienced….

0 confirmed Residential & In-Home client cases

7 MCCP clients have tested positive (4 in crisis homes, 3 Technical Assistance referrals) – all have recovered

32 Case Management clients have tested positive with 9 deaths

33 staff have tested positive for COVID and all have recovered

As a result of staff positive with COVID, 5 Residential Homes were impacted and our COVID Response Team was activated.

Updated COVID-19 travel restrictions: See document below for an updated list of states with high or rising rates of infection. Some travel may require a 14-day quarantine upon return using either PPL or unpaid time.
