Friendship Terrace


    In a press release Tuesday afternoon, Homer Senior Citizens Incorporated announced that its staff and facilities have been cleared of the COVID-19 virus.

    According to Executive Director Keren Kelly, there have been two consecutive weeks of negative coronavirus tests for all employees and residents of the Friendship Terrace assisted living facility.


Residents of Homer thought the worst when it was announced last week that the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 had reached Friendship Terrace, the assisted living arm of Homer Senior Citizens, Inc. Two employees had tested positive, and on Friday it was announced that a resident had tested positive for the disease.
    Cases of COVID-19 have run rampant in such congregate living centers around the nation, hitting Anchorage earlier this month.
