The Georgia National Guard is sending infection-control teams to nursing homes around the state to help limit the spread of COVID-19. This Saturday, May 9th, Seminole Manor Nursing home will utilize this service as an added precaution for our residents. The 2-121 Infantry Battalion, 48th IBCT will be in Donalsonville completing this mission.
“We are so thankful that Seminole Manor Nursing Home has so far kept
COVID-19 at bay. We want to continue to do everything we can to keep our residents safe. We are so appreciative that the National Guard is providing this service.” said, Shelly Hines, Director of Seminole Manor.
Long-term care residents are vulnerable to illnesses that can be caused or exacerbated by COVID-19. Among the precautions advised by the health department is frequent cleaning with disinfectants registered by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Col. John Till, safety officer for the Georgia Department of Defense and members of his team will use a disinfectant process that incorporates a solution approved by the EPA, following protocols of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the health department.
