Our facility has been recovered for some time now according to CDC guidelines and is with no new symptom onset of COVID-19. Screenings and symptom checks remain in place.
ALL precautionary measures according to guidance remain as well. Staff and Residents continuing to flow with times of the global pandemic.
Currently, we are continuing to allow outdoor visits; screening and weather pending, etc. We will be modifying the plan according to guidance in the week to reflect what our plan will look like as to our regional/zone/county cases and should we have to restrict visitation because of increased or outbreak areas. Further updates to come with regard to this.
We have began lunch time dining M-F in rotation of residents for those that choose to want to eat outside of their apartment. We are encouraging their social distancing interaction. Currently, we have the following in place: One (1) Resident seated per one (1) dining table during the lunch meal.
• This is for those we can maintain compliance of distancing without *challenge. ALL precautions and guidance remain in place.
Doorway activities will begin resuming and soon the possibility of incorporating the afternoon activity at the dining table the same way we are piloting the lunch seating.
