Geer Village issued a statement about the situation, giving an update on the recovery of those infected.

“We are encouraged to see 69 staff and residents already recovered and coming off isolation,” they said. “While we must continue with COVID-19 prevention protocols, we want to assure everyone we are doing our best to keep residents and staff safe. We continue to monitor the situation closely and will provide updates for residents, staff, families, and community stakeholders as the situation changes.”

Due to the high number of infections, Geer Village has cancelled all visits until they can get the outbreak under control; until then, they encouraged families to do video conferencing in order to communicate with residents of the facility.

“We understand that connecting with family members is incredibly important to our residents, and you are encouraged to continue to connect virtually,” they said.

Geer Village must remain infection-free for at least two weeks before residents and workers will be allowed to receive COVID-19 booster shots; the facility has not reported any infections since November 8.
