Senior living community The Conservatory at Alden Bridge has announced that due to following an enhanced operating procedure, it has curtailed the spread of coronavirus in its facility.

According to a post on The Conservatory's Facebook page, precautionary testing has been conducted on residents and staff.

"We were notified over the weekend and [are] pleased to announce that out of 15 individuals tested for COVID-19, a total of 14 are negative," the announcement said. "One resident, who is not currently in the community, tested positive, and all team members tested are cleared."

The announcement also indicates that the first and original group of residents who tested positive are now past two weeks and are showing no symptoms or signs of the coronavirus.

"We thank all of those residents for their vigilance in following our protocols in order to keep other residents in our community as safe as possible," the statement said. "We appreciate everyone’s patience, and we know this is a difficult time for all."


The announcement comes after it was confirmed April 2 by the Montgomery County Public Health District that three residents from The Conservatory at Alden Bridge had died from coronavirus.

As of April 7, Montgomery County had 197 positive cases of coronavirus with four deaths. 33 cases so far have seen successful recoveries.
