Health & Wellness - March 6, 2020
News of the first fatalities in the US from coronavirus in a Washington State skilled nursing community is understandably causing concern. We care about the wellbeing of residents and team members in the Villagio Senior Living Communities and want to keep you informed on all we are doing to mitigate the impact this virus has on residents and team members. Our clinical team created and implemented policies and procedures specific to coronavirus based on our very effective Norovirus protocol. We regularly schedule briefings with applicable personnel in the communities and we are continuing to monitor information from the CDC and will provide updates as warranted. We are requiring team members who are sick to stay home and ask family members to do the same. We encourage everyone to practice prevention such as frequent hand washing, covering when you cough, not touching your eyes, mouth and nose, and avoiding people who show symptoms. We want residents in all of our communities to continue to enjoy community life and receive compassionate care.
