First, thank you for adhering to all the restrictions we’ve needed to implement to help keep your loved ones and the entire community safe and healthy. We know it hasn’t always been easy. As this unpredictable and difficult year comes to an end, we’re starting to see a promise of a better future for all of us.
As we move closer to an approved vaccine, we are happy to say we are registered to be among the first to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. This means that once the CDC approves the vaccine’s distribution, our residents and staff will have the first option to receive it. We will share more information about what the vaccine will mean to our residents and staff, including expected timing, as we are informed.
In the meantime, we’re also happy to share that we’re implementing new technology to help keep residents and staff safe and healthy. First, we recently implemented a new technology called PopShap. This will scan visitors’ temperatures and confirm mask compliance of each and every visitor that comes into our communities. We are excited to incorporate it into our communities.
In addition to the PopShap temperature scanner, we added EvaClean’s Touchless Disinfection and Sanitizing Tool, which will more efficiently disinfect surfaces throughout our communities but most importantly in all common areas. Since day one of the pandemic, we have taken sanitation very seriously, but with the sanitizer gun’s addition, we can feel even more confident that our communities are clean and safe for all our residents to enjoy.
As for community visitation, our beloved “Sneeze Guard 3000” may have limitations during this upcoming winter season. Rest assured, we are working closely with the health department to determine the best way to implement safe visits in our communities.
Lastly, we understand it has been difficult to have continually changing guidelines about how much you can interact with your loved ones when you’d like nothing more than to hug and touch them. This seems like an even bigger burden during the holiday season. However, it is necessary that we all remain vigilant in our resolve to adhere to health protocols. We ask you to remember these restrictions are in place to ensure the health of the residents and staff.
This same request extends to when your loved ones leave the community grounds with you. It is necessary that social distancing and mask wearing are maintained during any offsite family visits as well. Unfortunately, if any positive cases are found we will need to revert to stricter restrictions again.
Together we can get through this.
We thank you for your continued support.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any comments, questions, or concerns. God Bless.
