Waveny LifeCare Network COVID-19 Daily Update for Residents, Patients, and Families
Amid more reports Tri-state economies are gradually reopening and easing COVID-19 operating restrictions, (Yale-New Haven resumption of elective surgeries, Hartford mall, and New Jersey beach reopenings, etc.), Waveny LifeCare Network is instead, intensifying our rigorous preventive, testing, and continuity of care protocols for each individual Patient, Resident, and Staff member.
The momentum of negative nasopharyngeal swab (PCR) results coupled with improved Immunoglobulin G (serum antibody (IgG) test clusters, further supports our continued efforts.
