HANOVER — Kendal at Hanover is limiting access to its Route 10 campus after two employees tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

The retirement community is closed to all visitors, and all common areas are now off-limits to residents, Kendal spokesman Jeff Roosevelt said in an email Monday.

He said meals are being delivered to residents to limit any possible exposure to the virus. Meanwhile, staff are required to wear protective gear, including masks and face guards, and are screened daily. 

Roosevelt said the two staffers who tested positive for the virus were among 250 employees to receive tests last week. Kendal is now working with the New Hampshire Department is Health and Human Services to conduct contact tracing and establish testing for residents and staff, he said. 

Hanover currently has fewer than five active cases of coronavirus, according to state tallies. Overall, the town has seen 28 cases since March.
