Monterey Seniors Village – May 8, 2020 Update

As we enter Mother’s Day weekend, we want to wish ALL Mothers the very best of health and happiness.

For those who are considering what gift you may share with your Mother, we ask that they NOT include organic items such as flowers or homemade food. However, store-bought items like chocolate that are wrapped can be delivered and dropped off at the table at the main entrance, where we will ensure it is sanitized and reaches your loved one.

Status

At this time, the health status of our residents has not changed. NO Resident is showing symptoms within our community.

We will continue to monitor residents very closely. Should any be symptomatic, they will be swabbed, and placed in isolation as a precaution until lab results are known – as a matter of course.

Swabs have been conducted of all employees and at this time, the number of affected staff remains at five. All affected staff are home and in self-isolation.

Staff members continue to be assessed at the beginning of their shift and mid-way through their shift, and should any be symptomatic, they will be placed in self-isolation as a matter of course.

Protocols

 We are  adhering to a number of strict protocols, including restricting ALL visitors from the premises.

We have increased the deep cleaning and sanitization of the entire community, with additional housekeeping staff in all areas of the building, and enhanced cleaning in high touch areas.

We will continue to act upon the latest advice of public health officials and adapt our operations as necessary and recommended, to reduce the risk of infection and transmission as much as possible.

Communication

 We will be communicating with all families via email on a daily basis along with Facebook posts. Should the condition of any resident change, family will be notified immediately.

 The community is restricting access to ALL visitors

There are no staffing issues to report today

Supplies

 Teamwork
