Kittitas County, WA -
COVID-19 has now touched three Long Term Care Facilities (LTCF) in Kittitas County. The Kittitas County Incident Management Team (IMT) has been notified of two positive residents of Pacifica Senior Living (Pacifica) in Ellensburg. Pacifica previously tested all residents on June 28. In response to the current situation, the IMT will be testing all residents and all staff of Pacifica Memory Care on Friday July 17th.
Additional cases of COVID-19 associated with Prestige Post-Acute and Rehab (3 more residents and 1 more staff) were also reported to the Kittitas County Incident Management Team (IMT) on July 14th. All patients are stable at this time.
The IMT will continue to provide updates as information is updated. All testing results have returned from the mass testing at Meadows and there was a total of two positive cases associated with that LTCF. To date, Prestige Post-Acute has 13 total cases in their facility (6 staff, 7 residents including one transferred from Pacifica). Prestige Post-Acute had mass testing on July 13th, so we anticipate additional cases will be reported once those test results come back.
