Our residents are continually monitored and staff is using PPE as recommended by the CDC. Staff is frequently reminded and encouraged to practice social distancing and to use hand sanitizer and frequently wash their hands when they are in the facility and out in the community. We ask them not to report to work if they have symptoms of illness. We will continue to follow the most updated guidelines from the CDC, State, Federal and facility protocols for all our Covid-19 precautions to keep our residents and staff safe!
