UPDATE: November 5, 2020

We continue regular, weekly testing of residents and staff at the Dammert Care Center for COVID-19 in order to contain and manage the spread of the virus.

As of this date, we have received final test results from our most recent round of testing. The new total of positive cases of COVID-19 is 41 residents and 22 staff members.

Unfortunately, despite our precautions, continued adherence to the guidance set forth by the Illinois Department of Health and the St. Clair County Health Department, and the best efforts of heroic medical staff, eight residents have passed away due to complications related to the virus. We mourn their passing and encourage you to keep them and their families in your prayers.  

As of today, 27 residents and 19 staff members have fully recovered and have been taken out of isolation. We continue to work diligently each day to improve outcomes for our residents and staff during this time. 

Updates can also be heard on our COVID-19 hotline at 618.394.6261.

Thank you again for your patience and prayers.
