To our Facility Community,
The weather is getting warmer each day as we head into Summer! We encourage you to remind your loved ones stay hydrated when you do see them. We are excited to have more time outside, and we hope the residents enjoy some of the activities we have planned in the coming weeks. Our residents safety is always a priority as well.
I would also like to remind you that while mask mandates have been lifted throughout the country, those changes do not apply to health care settings. All staff and visitors are required to wear masks and continue to practice good infection control practices both at home and while in our community. If you have any questions about our COVID status or current visiting recommendations, please call for additional information.
I also wish to encourage you to speak with your doctor if you are interested in the vaccine and booster shots that are now widely available in our communities. The vaccine seems to be quite effective at preventing serious illness and has been essential in our fight against the disease in our Facility.
We continue to work very hard to protect our residents; staff take all necessary precautions to prevent COVID-19 and we encourage all community members to do the same.
We will keep you up-to-date with all developments. On behalf of our residents and staff, please stay safe.
Gina Ruiz, LNHA
