Hickory, N.C. – Trinity Village, a skilled nursing home in Hickory, has confirmed positive Covid-19 tests for two residents and three teammates after state-mandated testing of the entire facility.
“We are doing everything we can to keep our residents and teammates at Trinity Village safe,” said Marcheta Campbell, Administrator of Trinity Village. “We are communicating closely with all residents and their families and working with the Catawba County Health department, which has been an excellent partner and shares our goal of keeping all of our Trinity Village family safe.”
“Trinity Village teammates continue to follow strict infection control guidelines, including wearing the right personal protective equipment, and we are doing everything we know to do to prevent COVID transmission,” Campbell said.
“Like all of our senior living communities, Trinity Village has been bracing for the possibility of an outbreak for months,” said Ted Goins, president and CEO of Lutheran Services Carolinas, the parent organization of Trinity Village. “Unfortunately, as the number of positive cases rises in Catawba County, congregate communities are at great risk. “
“The entire Hickory community can help our residents and our hero teammates,” Goins continued. “Please, please, practice the three Ws: WEAR your mask, WAIT six feet apart, and WASH your hands!”
