As we continue to learn more about the COVID-19 outbreak and how quickly it can spread, we have taken a number of precautions to keep residents safe.
As of today, we do not have any confirmed cases of COVID 19 in our building.
We have been and continue to be highly proactive in taking steps to help ensure the health and welfare of all residents and limiting possible exposure to COVID-19 or other viruses. This includes the implementation of enhanced infection control protocol and enhanced staff training. We are frequently cleaning and disinfecting items that are likely to be touched often, including all community areas, countertops, door handles, telephones and computer keyboards. We have also been proactive in taking resident and staff temperatures every day, and obtaining portable handwashing and hand sanitizing stations that have been set up throughout the community.
Over the past several weeks we have limited visitors to our community and have canceled outings, group activities and communal dining. All common areas in the community are closed. Following the directives of state and local governmental entities, we have secured the front doors to our community at all times. We are restricting visitors to only imminent end-of-life situations. In addition to the measures we’ve taken to practice social distancing in our community, residents are isolating themselves in their apartments.
We are helping residents keep in touch with family members through phone calls, video chats, letters, and email messages. We will continue to work closely with federal, state and local officials, and follow their guidance and advice.
