Welcome to the Friendship Villages’ June 4, 2021 COVID-19 update.
We are thrilled that our Independent Living communities are having a great time. All residents are maskless, dining rooms are open, activities are in full swing, excursions off-campus are happening, and visitors are visiting. Since our full immunization effort concluded for residents who were living on campus in the early part of February, there have been no cases of COVID for this group. All new residents arriving since then had either been previously vaccinated or were able to receive vaccinations on campus in one of our weekly clinics. The effects of being “COVID-free” have been a blessing to everyone as the activities and events have been restored and live is buzzing, once again, all around campus.
In our Assisted Living and Memory Care communities, as State-licensed facilities, residents and staff are still wearing masks until those rules are changed, but our residents are COVID-free, dining in dining rooms, welcoming visitors and having a great time.
In our Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation communities, also as State-licensed facilities, there are no residents with COVID-19 but, per regulations, everyone still wears masks. Resident activities are back in force, though, visitors are welcome on a scheduled basis, and dining is, once again, an exciting part of the highlights of the day. Visit details are available by contacting each location.
We could not be more excited for our residents as life is pretty close to normal in Independent Living and getting closer to normal every day in our licensed areas.
Life is Back! We praise God for the mercies He has shown to Friendship Villages, and we thank all of our friends and family for your prayers and support during all of this time.
