Playing Our Part
Prior to administering the COVID-19 vaccine among residents and staff on the Oak Hammock campus in December 2020, our aggressive testing strategy was imperative in identifying positivity on campus and mitigating spread of the coronavirus.
Now, we have shifted our approach to one more focused on increased vaccination for all residents and staff based on guidance from the Florida Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Our dedicated pharmacy partners and the local health department helped us reach a vaccination level of almost 100% for residents. Furthermore, approximately 70% of staff members have elected to receive vaccines.
We are honored to work with all of our healthcare partners in reaching vaccination goals. Together with our broader community, our county boasts one of the lowest COVID-19 positivity rates of positive cases in the state of Florida. We are proud of our community's proactive and diligent approach to fighting COVID-19, and we are committed to responsible and diligent infection control practices.
