First Atlantic HealthCare: COVID-19 Employee Testing Results

First Atlantic HealthCare is taking every precaution possible to keep our residents, staff and communities safe. Critical to achieving this goal are the efforts of our dedicated, expert and well-trained employees.

  • All staff are screened prior to the start of their shift for COVID-19 symptoms and their temperature checked.
  •  Any staff member who fails the screening process is sent home and required to have a test before coming back to work.
  •  If a staff member tests positive, as a result of screening failure or a regular test, they are required to meet the return to work criteria outlined by the CDC.

We are pleased to share the results of staff testing at our long-term care and assisted living facilities.

In the event that a staff member at one of our facilities tests positive for COVID-19 we have a response plan in place to inform residents, families, and employees and work closely with the Maine CDC to ensure that steps are taken to limit further exposure and stop the spread of infection. The steps include immediate employee consultation with the Maine CDC and expanded COVID-19 testing for all residents and employees.

Please Note: CMS defines “facility staff” as including employees, consultants, contractors, volunteers, and caregivers who provide care and services to residents on behalf of the facility, and students. Testing results can be provided by a contractor’s primary employer to the facility as long as it is within the time frame indicated by the positivity rating.
