Manor of the Plains resident dies

One resident who previously tested positive for COVID-19 at Manor of the Plains has died.

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of this resident,” said John Van Hook, executive director. “Our residents are like family members, and we mourn each one of them. Please join our team in praying for the family of this resident during this difficult time.”

The resident had been cared for in isolation by a designated team of staff members following CDC and infection control protocols.

PMMA continues to strongly encourage our families, employees and residents to carefully consider obtaining a vaccine for themselves as well as their loved ones. Every person who receives the vaccine will strengthen the protection for all residents, staff and the community at-large.

Employees and residents are encouraged to follow CDC guidelines and best practices as these are continually updated. The community regularly reinforces with all employees that an employee should not report to work if he or she is experiencing symptoms of a respiratory illness or is not feeling well.
