Dear Trinity families and supporters,
We hope you and your loved ones are continuing to stay safe and healthy.
Since our last statement on November 20, 27 staff members at locations throughout the state and 24 people we support in the Joliet and Peoria areas tested positive for the coronavirus. Also since our last statement, eight people have recovered. Others are continuing to experience symptoms or need to quarantine longer. We hope for a quick and full recovery for all who have been impacted by the virus.
As a reminder, we always notify immediate family members first if their loved one has tested positive, as well as housemates’ family members, prior to sending out these statements.
One quarter of our roughly 100 group homes have moved into a stay-in-place staffing model for the next three to four weeks to keep people as safe as possible. We are so grateful to staff members who volunteered to make the selfless commitment to temporarily move into these homes.
We plan to issue further guidance in the near future regarding holiday visits, as the pandemic continues to evolve.
We will continue to keep you updated on any new information related to COVID-19 as it becomes available.
For faster access to updates, please keep an eye on our website, or send us your email address. Please also look for Trinity Services on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or Instagram to view regular Friday update videos. Thank you for your continued support and friendship.
Your Friends at Trinity Services
