The Living Care Association said in a statement that, as part of its regular testing plan for users and employees, four new positive cases of Covid-19 were detected.
“These cases were detected among external personnel assigned to the kitchen of the Atalaia Living Care Unit, that is, who are not in direct contact with users and employees in direct healthcare provision”, explains the association.
In this sense, the Living Care Association appealed to companies providing outsourcing services in its Units, so that they also regularly test their employees.
The same note points out that under the regular testing plan implemented by Living Care in its Units at the beginning of last December, approximately one thousand antigen tests have already been carried out.
It also informs that, on the 9th of January 2021, in close collaboration with the Regional Secretariat of Health and Civil Protection, through the Health Service of the Autonomous Region of Madeira, users and employees of the Lar de Câmara de Lobos, totaling 110 vaccines.
“On behalf of the Living Care Association, we publicly thank the SESARAM, EPE teams, their Chairman of the Board of Directors, the IASAÚDE Emergency Public Health Unit, IP-RAM, the Regional Secretary for Health and Civil Protection, the Regional Secretary of Social Inclusion and Citizenship and the Regional Government of Madeira, in the person of the President of the Regional Government of Madeira, all the collaboration that has been provided to the units managed by the Living Care Association, in this fight for the health of all”, he concludes.
