Roselani Place COVID-19 Update: Three Staff Test Positive Since Jan. 11
The Roselani Place assisted living community on Maui has confirmed that three staff members have tested positive with COVID-19 since Jan. 11, 2021. All three are isolating at home, according to an update provided by management.
This comes after a single case was identified in a staff member during surveillance testing a week earlier.
A total of 106 tests have been conducted on staff and residents since facility management became aware of the positive staff member test results.
Results from the most recent PCR testing date on Jan. 14, reflect that 10 tests are still pending; however all rapid tests done reflect presumptive negative results. The 10 PCR test results will be provided once available.
The facility also conducted its first on-site vaccine clinic on Jan. 14, where 58 residents received a first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
On the same day, Lt. Gov. Josh Green joined Maui Mayor Michael Victorino and Maui District Health Director Dr. Lorrin Pang in a visit to Roselani Place to discuss vaccination efforts on Maui and how to best mitigate further spread within the community.
Karl Drucks with Paradigm Senior Living, the management company for Roselani Place Senior Living said plans are already scheduled for the second dose vaccine shots.
“The Roselani Team is working harder than ever and we appreciate the residents and your continued prayers, support and aloha you have given and continue to share,” said Drucks.
