COVID-19 Information and Precautions
March 29th, 2021
Happy Spring Resident and Families!
We are excited to announce that we have extended visits to residents’ apartments on our AL side. New Day resident visits will remain in the library so that the residents in New Day can continue to walk freely around the New Day neighborhood.
On April 7th we will start taking appointments for visits in apartments for all vaccinated residents. We will also be extending visits to the weekends starting Saturday, April 10th from the hours of 9 am-7 pm.
We still will need to control the number of people in the community and have ample time to wipe things down such as; elevator buttons, handrails, etc. Appointments will still be 45 minutes in length.
Visitors must still follow all the previous guidelines.
- Wear a facemask that covers your nose and mouth. Masks must be worn for the duration of your visit.
- Wash hands when entering and leaving the community.
- Check-in at the front desk to get your temperature taken and answer the questionnaire.
- Maintain 6 feet separation (even when in the apartment).
- Visitors must be 12 years of age or older.
- Two visitors at a time.
- You must remain in the apartment during your scheduled visitation.
As we all know this year-long pandemic has taken a toll on many residents and staff members’ mental and physical health. Isolation can be a lonely and debilitating situation. Therefore, we opened breakfast in a safe manner following all guidelines a few weeks ago.
Beginning this week breakfast will be served 7 days a week in the dining room. You still have the right to make yourself something in your apartment for breakfast if you do not want to come to breakfast service, however, breakfast will no longer be served to you in your apartment unless you are in isolation/quarantine or the nurse determines you need a sick tray. Supportive Living is a program that encourages residents to socialize and interact with others and now that we have been vaccinated, we want to encourage our residents to be apart of the community again.
Also, we will be opening our doors to our friendly mailman who will now deliver your mail to your personal mailbox. Please start coming back down to check your mailbox daily!
