To say that the past 18 months have been challenging would be an understatement;
however, throughout this unprecedented pandemic, you all have stepped
up and found ways to work together to continue to care for our community.
We can all be proud of what we have accomplished together as a leader in
tough times and our community continues to look to us all for guidance,
strength and reassurance.
As you are aware, the COVID Delta Variant has become prevalent across Louisiana
and healthcare is again on the frontlines. Currently, our COVID cases
continue to climb at an exceeding fast pace. In an effort to protect our
patients, staff, and physicians, several precautions have been put in place.
Our policies and processes that were in place prior have been reinstituted.
Masks are mandated for all, along with patient visitation limited per
our prior policy. At this time, the DELTA Variant has shown to be highly
contagious and easily transmittable, so please assure that mask and hand
washing precautions are adhered to. We continue to offer the vaccine for
all staff during work or after, please call Teresita McNabb at 873-4664
Our main goal is to keep our patients and staff safe at all times. Please
know that I truly appreciate all you do and your continued dedication
and perseverance as we face this new COVID challenge again!
