Two staff members at the Woodward Resource Center (WRC) have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, according to a message sent to guardians and family members Wednesday by the WRC administration.
The two staff members do not provide direct services to individuals at the resource center, the message from WRC Assistant Superintendent Diane Stout said.
In response to the outbreak, Stout said the facility is suspending visits on campus, including by family and guardians, and suspending off-campus visits, leisure trips off campus and individuals working off campus. On-campus work has also been halted.
Zoom visits remain available, she said.
In order to relax the restrictions, “there must be at least 14 days that have passed since the last positive case transmitted at the facility that was identified amongst both individuals served and staff,” Stout said.
Friday, Oct 2 is the soonest the restrictions could be relaxed.
The WRC is home to about 130 residents and the workplace of about 500 employees.
