Friendship Villages’ January 3, 2022 COVID-19 Update

Happy New Year!  2022 is coming in with a bang! With the increased prevalence of COVID all around, we are making a temporary policy change for residents, guests and staff of the Villages as a mitigating precautionary measure. Both campuses have had several residents report that they have been exposed to friends and family who have subsequently tested positive for COVID-19.  A few of these residents have now tested positive, though generally the symptoms have been relatively minor, and we thank our Good Lord for that. Effective Tuesday, January 4th, […]

Friendship Villages’ December 20, 2021 COVID-19 Update

Welcome to the Friendship Villages’ December 20, 2021 COVID-19 update. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Friendship Villages! As we recall, virtually all residents received the full regimen of vaccinations last winter and, since then, more than 1,000 residents, including all levels of care on both campuses, have received COVID vaccination booster shots.  Many others sought boosters on their own and would add to this number. Still, COVID-19 remains a challenge. We have had a bit of a spate of COVID on the Chesterfield campus.  Recently and currently, several […]

Friendship Villages’ September 28, 2021 COVID-19 update

Welcome to the Friendship Villages’ September 28, 2021 COVID-19 update. We have been very blessed during recent months at Friendship Village with regard to COVID-19.  Since January 2021, when virtually all of our residents completed their vaccination process, only a handful across both Villages have contracted COVID-19.  Each of these residents had been fully vaccinated.  All contracted the virus from friends, family or attending events off campus.  All have recovered. On Monday, September 27, 2021, St. Louis County issued a new mandate that requires all persons over the age of […]
