April 25 and 26, 2020 Ludeman COVID-19 Status

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.
We received the following information from the Ludeman Center this afternoon for the COVID-19 testing results.   Of note, the count remained the same for both days,  Saturday April 25th and Sunday April 26th:

* Ludeman Residents:   146 tested positive.  82 tested negative. 117 pending results.
* Ludeman Staff:  58 tested positive. 
* 28 of 38 occupied Ludeman Homes have individuals that have been tested and received results for COVID-19.

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