Masks

Effective Saturday, May, 15 masks are no longer required by residents in independent living while in the Manor, Place, cottages, garden homes, or outside.

Residents of Allen Morgan and Trezevant Terrace who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear a mask.  Masks are still required by visitors in the Terrace and Allen Morgan due to requirements from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

We encourage you to wear them in public because you may encounter visitors who are not vaccinated.

 Quarantine

Independent Living:  Residents who are fully vaccinated (2 weeks after your second dose of Moderna or Pfizer, OR 2 weeks after your single dose of Johnson and Johnson) are not required to quarantine after a trip to the hospital.  You should monitor for signs or symptoms for 14 days post hospitalization and contact the Wellness Clinic if you are experiencing any problems or symptoms.

Assisted Living:  Residents who are fully vaccinated (2 weeks after your second dose of Moderna or Pfizer, OR 2 weeks after your single dose of Johnson and Johnson) are able to follow infection prevention guidelines may return to their Terrace apartment.  They will quarantine for 14 days and take a rapid test daily while in quarantine.

Allen Morgan:  Per Medicare guidelines any resident that is admitted will be required to start in our observation unit for a minimum of 72 hours until a negative PCR (lab confirmed test) is received.

 Visitors to Trezevant

Staff

We test staff, vendors, contractors, and sitters on a consistent basis to ensure that nobody infected is working.

We screen all staff to prevent exposing residents. Staff members are screened daily and are required to wear a mask anytime they are in public or around residents.  They are required to stay home if ill, especially with respiratory symptoms. Also, we require staff that travel to self-quarantine and then retest prior to returning to work.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this difficult time and determine how to best serve our community, while maintaining our focus where it belongs: on our residents and dedicated staff.
