PFLC Logo 2020

We received the following update from the Ludeman Center this morning:
Ludeman is continuing to test all residents who have not been previously tested for COVID-19. The additional testing is based on recommendations from the infectious disease physician who is consulting with the Divisions of Developmental Disabilities and Mental Health. This will enable Ludeman to continue the best possible precautionary, clinical and medical programming and supports for the people they serve.  Ludeman will notify families of the testing process and results.

* Ludeman Residents:   133 tested positive.  78 tested negative. 134 pending results.
* Ludeman Staff:  37 tested positive. 3 tested negative.
* 24 of 38 occupied Ludeman Homes have individuals that have been tested.

Staff Wellness checks are being conducted before reporting to their assignment.
