Based on updated CDC and state guidance, we able to phase out some of the previous COVID-19 protocols in our senior living communities. While we are not a “health care facility” (hospitals and skilled nursing facilities are), we have a preparedness plan and protocols in place. The health and safety of our residents and our associates is always our top priority.
Our plan allows to respond to COVID-19 infections as needed, with interventions designed in a more targeted fashion. In the event of an infection, this would include isolating the individual, working with his/her primary care provider, and testing close contacts.
The CDC no longer recommends use of masks in senior living communities. Masks will only be required based on state guidelines, local transmission rates, and if a community is experiencing an outbreak.
We know our associates play an important role in ensuring the safety and well-being of our residents, visitors and fellow associates. Our associates have been trained in respiratory illness, including infection control practices and monitoring for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
The Executive Director of your community is available to answer any questions you might have.
