      • 188 new hospital admits – confirmed and presumptive positive admits
      • 76 ICU beds are still available
    • According to the Johns Hopkins University, thirty-two states reported rising COVID-19 infections, and have warned that hospitalizations are starting to go up in 75 percent of the jurisdictions across the country. There has been a dramatic surge throughout the country.
      • Utah is out of hospital beds
      • El Paso exceeded 1000 new cases and has implemented a curfew. Their contact tracing is showing that the majority of their spread is coming from 3 areas;
        • Visiting stores 37 percent
        • Eating at restaurants 22.5 percent
        • Traveling to Mexico 19 percent
  • Fowler Updates:
    • Here at Fowler, we have another case to report
    • Last week we shared that we had one team member in Assisted Living that had tested positive
      • Today we learned that a resident in our assisted living has tested positive
    • Our Worth resident that was in the hospital has transitioned to Christian Care and is now with her friends from the Worth Neighborhood and doing well
      • All of our Worth residents, as well as our team members, are recovering
    • Last week, we transitioned our assisted living dining service, to room service until further notice
      • Activities of 10 or less people have been paused
      • Residents in assisted living are socially isolating in their apartments
      • Assisted Living residents will be tested again today as well as all team members
    • We have implemented a mid-shift screening which includes temperature checks for all staff, this is in addition to the start of shift screening that has been in place since March
    • Residents in our licensed areas will be monitored every 8 hours – this includes a check on all symptoms, vital signs and temperatures
    • I trust that all of my teammates have done the additional Relias class that was pushed out to you over the weekend – that is of highest priority
    • Based on the rise of cases in Dallas County and the surge in community spread, we have returned to restricted access in Independent Living – no visitors will be allowed in the building except for home health, hospice and other caregivers deemed essential. Compassionate care visits for end of life will be granted.
    • We will continue to respond to our COVID environment
      • We strongly recommend that everyone follow the recommendations of the Dallas County Health Department – Stay Home, Stay Safe
      • Limit your interactions outside of your home
      • Leave your home for essential needs only – groceries can still be delivered, and curb side pickup is still available
      • Love Your Neighbor Basics remains our top defense – AT ALL TIMES practice these simple life protecting rules:
        • Wear a mask
        • Wash your hands frequently
        • Sanitize hard surfaces
        • Social distance
      • I want to emphasize one more – monitor your own health – if you do not feel well, stay home, remain in your apartment and notify the management of your building
      • Symptoms you need to be monitoring:
        • Fever
        • Cough
        • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
        • Fatigue
        • Sore throat
        • Muscle aches
        • Loss of taste or smell
        • Nasal congestion or running nose
        • GI symptoms including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain
      • If you are experiencing one of these symptoms, isolate yourself immediately and notify your manager
    • A reminder that no fast food should be ordered or delivered at any time – pizza delivery is still off limits – resident or staff
    • We will be celebrating Halloween on Friday
      • Our Halloween Sing Along Monster Mash will be moved from Wednesday to Friday
      • Halloween costume are welcomed and encouraged!
  • TEAMMATE TUESDAY
    • Happy Birthday to Santos Nuno and Helen Lamb, who celebrate on October 31
    • Happy Anniversary to Ann McKinley, 8 years and Jesse Cisneros, 6 years
    • Congratulations to controller Laura Deiterman who will retire from her full-time position at the end of this year after serving at Fowler for 34 years! Laura has experienced a lot of our history – she actually worked in the original Harwood Hall for the Aged – her office was in the basement, before the Administration Building, Pearl Nordan Care Center and Jackson Living Center were built. Laura will continue to work part time at Fowler.
    • Congratulations to office manager Sylvia Ferguson who will be promoted to controller. Sylvia joined our team in May and brought years of accounting experience with her. We are grateful for her wealth of skills and knowledge – we are blessed to have her on our team.
  • Make it a great day on purpose!
