Parsons Presbyterian Manor employee tests positive for COVID-19
One employee at Parsons Presbyterian Manor tested positive for COVID-19 this week. The employee last worked on Tuesday, April 12 after passing screening prior to their shift.
We have notified the Labette County Health Department and we will follow health department guidance on testing and monitoring any at-risk residents or employees. This is the first positive case in our community since February.
We will follow the PMMA® Emergent Infectious Disease (EID) Policy and KDHE and CDC guidelines in determining when the employee may return to work and any restrictions upon their return.
PMMA strongly encourages family members, employees and residents to carefully consider getting a COVID-19 vaccination for themselves, as well as their loved ones. Every person who receives the vaccine will strengthen the protection for all residents, staff and the community at-large.
All employees are encouraged to follow CDC guidelines and best practices as these are continually updated. The community regularly reinforces with all staff that an employee should not report to work if he or she is experiencing symptoms of a respiratory illness or not feeling well.
