Associate Tests Positive
Villagio of Oklahoma City has received news today that an associate in the memory support neighborhood has tested positive for Covid-19 testing. The associate last worked 11/13 and had symptoms on the 14th prompting the test that day with results today. The associate is currently home in isolation. We have one test pending for another memory support associate who is not symptomatic. There are no other associates or residents displaying symptoms.
We are temporarily suspending all in-person visits and will go to window visits and virtual visits until further notice. If you would like to schedule a virtual or window visit in assisted living, please reach out with the information provided in your personal letter that you should have received via email.
All team members are wearing medical masks and gloves when providing resident care. We continue to take the temperatures of residents and team members and are closely monitoring everyone for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. Additionally, each of the neighborhoods continue to operate with dedicated team members, there is no sharing of direct care associates and residents are not moving between neighborhoods at this time.
The entire community continues to operate under the CDC restricted status of no communal dining, no group life enrichment and only essential care visitors. Movement throughout the community is discouraged.
We will contact you if your loved one is suspected or diagnosed with COVID-19.
We have established a family hotline number, just for families to receive updated information, toll free 405-766-7955. Please limit your calls to family members only seeking information. For specific resident questions, please know someone may need to call you back after a message is relayed to care teams.
CLC-Cappella will host a Family Town Hall Webinar for all residents, team members, and families associated with any of our 23 supported communities. In the webinar, we will provide the latest status update regarding COVID-19, clinical preparedness and directives, holiday plans and visits, and review state-specific mandates. We will answer questions previously submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org .

Please know we are working very hard to ensure the well-being of everyone who lives and works at our community. Together, we will get through this.
Villagio of OKC Indoor Visitation Updates
Villagio of Oklahoma City has temporarily transitioned to window visits only. Although our residents and associates remain symptom free, this visitation change is due to a recent increase in COVID-19 cases in the area. Please know we are working very hard to ensure the well-being of everyone who lives and works at our community and continue follow virus prevention protocols. Together, we will get through this.
Villagio of OKC Indoor Visitation Updates
The Oklahoma Department of Health has recently created guidelines for indoor family visitation in assisted living and memory support communities. Villagio of Oklahoma City in conjunction with Cappella Living Solutions have implemented protocols for resident, associate, and visitor protection.
The visitation will be structured and must be scheduled in advance. Visits will be limited to twenty minutes with sanitation protocols put in place between each visit. Visitors and residents will need to wear surgical masks and remain at least six feet apart. Visitation will paused if any residents or associates test positive for COVID-19, or if there are any pending cases.
Our community continues to operate under the CDC restricted status but a newly formed Health and Happiness committee is evaluating how we can better balance crucial required health protocols with the mental well-being and happiness of residents. We will have more updates soon.
Updates to Health and Happiness Procedure
While many states are in various stages of reopening, government restrictions have not changed for senior living communities. We are still under restrictive CDC status. However, CLC-Cappella has formed a Health and Happiness Committee to reevaluate our current procedures in order to strike a balance between the crucial need to maintain physical health with mental health leading to happiness.
At this time, Villagio of Oklahoma City is operating under restricted status per the state of Oklahoma guidelines. We will keep you updated and will share measures we are taking regarding in person visits as soon as we are able. Thank you for your continued support. Please contact us with questions or for more information.
