Residents & Staff Prioritized for Covid-19 Vaccine

|

Each day since Mid-March our teams have worked diligently to protect our residents and each other from Covid-19. This virus that has shut down countries and brought the world to a standstill has been on all our minds--we are sure yours as well-- nearly constantly for most of 2020. Finally, we breathe a sigh of relief and see a clear pathway to health, safety, and a return to having friends and family joining us in our community.

Long Term Care communities and healthcare staff were given top priority to receive the Covid-19 vaccine by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each individual state working with pharmacy partners are working at this moment on distribution plans. Many of you have questions regarding the vaccine and its distribution. We have put together a Fact Sheet to help answer some of those questions and will be rolling out an informational campaign to continue our commitment to transparency and communication.

Team members with positive results remain offsite isolating until considered recovered by CDC guidelines. We continue to monitor residents for symptoms relative to Covid-19 and are happy to report that no residents are currently exhibiting symptoms. We will personally reach out to primary contacts if their loved-one begins to exhibit symptoms or receives a positive test result.

Note: While we encourage discussion and communication on our page, misinformation and unsubstantiated claims will be removed from this comment thread. We encourage you to learn more about the vaccine through our linked Fact post, the CDC's website, or your personal doctor.
