Parksley Community Services Board Employee Tests Positive for COVID-19


By Connie Morrison —

Eastern Shore Community Services Board Executive Director Lisa “MiMi” Sedjat said an employee at CSB’s Parksley location has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.

Because that employee was in direct contact with clients and other employees, 12 people who had contact with the employee were placed in quarantine.

“We gave the health department the list that they requested, which was anyone who was in 6 feet or less distance for more than 10 minutes at a time … from March 29 to April 6,” she said. “There were some that they – the health department – chose to quarantine.”

All contacts were made by the health department 5 p.m. Friday, Sedjat said.

The health department “has been incredible to work with,” she said, calling quarantined employees to check on them over the weekend.

Services to clients are continuing via confidential Zoom, a video app, and HIPPA-compliant telephones. “We are able to do everything either telephonically or also with video, depending on what that client and/or that clinician chooses,” said Sedjat.
