What Residents Can Do
While we are not a “health care facility” (hospitals and skilled nursing facilities are considered these), we are closely following the guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to help prevent the virus from entering our communities. We are encouraging all our residents, as well as our associates, to follow the CDC guidelines below:
- Wash your hands frequently. Use soap and water and wash them for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
- If soap and water isn’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. We have several hand sanitizer pumps located in common areas throughout our communities.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a flexed elbow or tissue when coughing and sneezing. Remember to throw away the tissue and wash your hands immediately.
- Maintain social distance. If possible, keep a distance of 6 feet between you and someone who is coughing, sneezing or has a fever.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Hands touch many surfaces that can be contaminated with the virus.
- Seek emergency medical attention if you have any of the following symptoms: trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion, inability to wake or stay awake, bluish lips or face.
- Notify our staff immediately if you have any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. We will assist any resident who needs help seeking medical attention.
