Seashore Point Has No Positive Tests
As of April 27, testing for the coronavirus at the Outer Cape’s only long-term care facility has found no positive cases among residents or staff at Seashore Point’s nursing home, Advinia Care, said David Ball, a company spokesman.
Advinia Care is owned by the Pointe Group, which also owns the Pleasant Bay Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Brewster, where 60 of 92 residents tested positive in three rounds of testing at the facility, according to an April 20 report by the town of Brewster.
Town Clerk Moves to the Schools
Darlene Van Alstyne, the town clerk for the last three years, will be leaving her job to become the administrative assistant to Provincetown Schools Supt. Suzanne Scallion.
Her last day is April 30, she said.
Van Alstyne was the town’s licensing agent for six years and the assistant town clerk for four before becoming town clerk when Doug Johnstone retired.
Assistant Town Clerk Ana Ruiz will run the office until a replacement is hired.
“It’s a tough job, but it’s really fun to do,” Van Alstyne said. “Putting together the elections is a lot of work, but come election day, it’s the funnest day of the year.”
She’s also a fan of the hand-crank ballot box and hopes Provincetown sticks to hand-counting, even though all other Cape Cod towns have decided to use electronic tabulators.
“People really enjoy coming in, touching that paper, and hearing that ding,” she said. —K.C. Myers
