Dear Dr. Petrone and Staff,

My father is a resident on the 4th floor of St. Ann’s Home, so I write partly as a daughter.  I am also a microbiologist and immunologist who is closely following developments with SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 very closely.  I want to commend you and all your staff on St. Ann’s response to the COVID-19 epidemic.  The actions taken by St. Ann’s reflect an understanding of best practices, a grounding in the rapidly evolving research/new information about the virus, and sincere care, concern, and compassion for St. Ann’s residents and their families.  My family and I truly appreciate the priority given to transparent and timely communications and the quality of information shared.  We are also so grateful to all the staff at St. Ann’s who increase their own risk by caring for our loved ones.  Please keep up the good work and know that you and all the St. Ann’s staff are in our thoughts and prayers.
