As we learn more about COVID-19 and the impact it has on older adults, we are taking a proactive approach to keeping our community safe. New precautions include self-isolation for residents, canceling all activities and group dining and restrictions on visitors and any residents who leave our building. Read more about what we are doing to keep residents safe and how you can help.
In addition to proper handwashing and avoiding spreading germs, one of the most important things we can all do is practice social distancing.
To ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone at our community, we are taking additional measures, including limiting social visits, canceling large group gatherings and resident outings, and remaining vigilant about avoiding the spread of germs. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and provide updates as new information becomes available.
Our community is taking a proactive approach to keeping residents and staff safe from coronavirus, influenza, norovirus and other viruses.
