The Woodland, Inc today confirmed that a resident of its Brookview assisted living facility tested positive for COVID-19. The resident is currently off campus. The retirement community continues to follow Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Virginia Department of Health (VDH) guidelines as it has since the pandemic began.
“We are in the process of testing all residents and staff of Brookview as well as freezing activities at Brookview until further notice,” said Greg Cole, president and CEO of The Woodland.
In addition to cancelling community activities at Brookview, all residents of Brookview must remain in their rooms until further notice, with meals being delivered to residents’ rooms. The Woodland is working closely with Centra Southside Community Hospital as well as the Piedmont Health District of the VDH.
“With the existing level of spread in our surrounding community, we have been working closely with local health agencies and have been following best practices to protect our residents,” said Cole.
In July The Woodland was named an “exemplary facility” during an inspection focusing on Covid-19 prevention coordinated by the Virginia Department of Health.
