Manteno Veterans Home residents have had zero contact with COVID-19 positive at Prince Home, a supportive unit for the Manteno Veterans Home.

Last Saturday, news of a single positive COVID-19 case was announced at the Prince Home, to which no further information was received. The Prince Home is a standalone building on the IVHM property that provides housing and supportive services for homeless veterans.

“Staff and residents from the Prince home have not interacted with staff and residents at the Illinois Veterans’ Home at Manteno since the state began its coordinated and robust response to this public health emergency,” said Evan Fazio, Public Information Officer with the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs.

The Prince Home and Manteno Veterans Home continue to follow recommendations from the Health Department.

“The Prince home is following recommendations from local health officials and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) to safeguard everyone at the home, including cleaning and disinfecting the area where the employee worked,” said Fazio on Monday.

No indication was made as to the employee’s duties at the facility. The Department of Veterans Affairs reports no known cases to date at the Illinois Veterans Home at Manteno (IVHM).
