At this time, all of our residents remain symptom free including each of the original 8 residents who were in contact with COVID-19.

We continue to communicate with all families via e-mail and place phone calls to family members of the eight directly impacted residents – on Monday’s, Wednesday’s, and Friday’s. If there are any changes families will be updated immediately.

We continue to post daily updates on the Retirement Concepts Website and Facebook Page.
