There have been a lot of questions regarding what the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling yesterday means for our communities. The Court’s ruling focused on the economy, people returning to go back to work and businesses needing to reopen. While there is controversy around this decision, our number one priority remains the same: the safety and wellbeing of our residents and team members. It is because of this reason that we will continue to take appropriate steps to minimize our residents’ exposure to COVID-19. The COVID-19 virus is still prevalent, there is no vaccination to date, and cases continue to grow. Our residents, due to their age and comorbidities, are at the highest risk of having more serious symptoms and outcomes when contracting the COVID-19 virus.
We are continuing to restrict all non-essential health care providers and family members into our community at this time. Please know that we are consistently reviewing the recommendations by the CDC, the World Health Organization, local health agencies, as well as industry best practices and will revise our protocols when it is safe to do so. We encourage you to remain in contact with your loved ones via telephone, video calls and social distanced outside visits. Our communities will continue to make cell phones and other digital equipment available to residents who may not have cell phones.
Should an emergency situation arise requiring an in-person visit, our team will contact you immediately and coordinate your visit to ensure the wellbeing of our residents and team. Please do not hesitate to contact the executive director of the community if you have any questions or concerns. We regret the inconvenience this will cause.
Thank you for your understanding and support in working together to keep everyone as healthy and safe as possible during this time.
