Update from Administrator – February 8, 2021

February 08, 2020

Dear Families,

As always, we hope this letter finds you safe and healthy as we begin the New Year!

We have no new COVID cases.

As you know by now, our staff and residents have completed two COVID-19 vaccination clinics, with many of our eligible staff and residents now having received at least one dose. The third and final clinic is scheduled to be administered on 02/14/2021 to residents and staff who are receiving their second and final dose.

With most nursing home residents having already received their first, and in many cases, second doses of the vaccine, the state has already reported a significant decrease in nursing home cases of COVID among residents and staff, further proof that the vaccine works and we’re doing our part to eliminate COVID!

While the vaccination plan in our state is well underway, we continue to take all necessary precautions, including wearing personal protective equipment and conducting regular testing, to ensure the safety of our residents and staff.

Visitation

As of Monday 2/8/2021 we have re-opened to in-person visitation.  We will also continue to follow the guidance and recommendations of our public health officials (CDC, CMS, DPH) to determine how and when to adjust our policies for visitations and social activities and keep you updated.

Remember we always offer visitations using our technology (iPads, tablets, calls, etc.).

Thank you and please stay safe and healthy!
