Dear Friends, Residents and Families of Friendship Village:
It is the end of a beautiful week at Friendship Villages on this Friday, August 21st, 2020.
A brief report today, as we have been blessed with very few changes since last week.
Our Residents at all levels of care on both campuses have been blessed with another week of being completely COVID-free! Independent Living, Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing. No Residents on our campuses who have tested positive for COVID-19.
To be expected, we are watching a few employees who may have been exposed to others who were COVID-positive, though none of the employees have tested positive, yet. They are in self-quarantine at home until we know they are clear.
As a reminder summary of our Visitor and Activity protocols:
Visitation: Independent Living Residents may have visitors on campus and in their apartments in accordance with current public health guidance.
Friendship Village Sponsored Activities are planned in accordance with current public health guidance.
We will continue to monitor St. Louis County guidance and talk with our local public health resources and adjust protocols as required. We anticipate these restrictions for at least 2-3 more weeks, but we won’t know until the State and County make changes.
We appreciate everyone’s ongoing understanding of the situation. Our foremost concern is for the safety of our Residents and our employees. We thank you for your cooperation.
We are not alone. God is with us. Together, we’ve got this!
