(Saturday, April 4, 4 p.m.): The spouse of a Rossmoor employee tested positive for COVID-19, but no one in Rossmoor was exposed because the employee hasn’t been on-site since much of Rossmoor shutdown last month.
In early March, the spouse was traveling in Texas and wasn’t feeling well when she returned home March 13. The employee, whose name is being withheld for privacy reasons, was already working remotely and immediately self-quarantined.
His wife tested positive a few days after her return. Her fever broke around March 25 and she has since been cleared by her doctor.
The employee has been instructed to self-quarantine until two weeks after his wife’s fever broke. Even after the quarantine, he will remain at home working remotely, like other staff members who handle similar work.
As of Saturday, April 4, there were no reports of any positive tests for residents or employees in Rossmoor.
