Senior Living Residences Residents & Staff Among First in Nation to Receive Covid Vaccine
The CDC has recommended that residents and employees of long-term care facilities (which includes Assisted Living) be among the first to receive a COVID-19 vaccine along with the nation’s healthcare workers. This is VERY good news.
Through an arrangement with CVS Health/Omnicare, the vaccine is being administered in clinics conducted in our communities; These began in mid-January.
With this vaccine, seniors and their families can rest more easily knowing our communities offer a very safe place to live for the foreseeable future. We will continue to follow all public health directives concerning social distancing and mask wearing, as well as our own robust safety protocols, including screening, testing, deep cleaning and sanitizing to keep everyone safe (residents, staff and visitors).
Throughout this pandemic, we have focused not just on safety but on maintaining the vibrancy of communal life for our residents with opportunities for meaningful social engagement, exercise and a full dining program.
