Protected Together, Stronger Together
With the majority of our residents and associates fully vaccinated and vaccination rates steadily rising in our greater communities, we are looking forward to helping our residents’ get back to enjoying what they love most about living with us.
Loosening of Restrictions and Resumption of Services
After much anticipation, fully vaccinated residents can start enjoying more community services and expanded visitation, subject to applicable guidelines as they evolve, including:
- Welcoming visits from fully vaccinated loved ones in private apartments
- Spending time together in community amenity spaces and socializing with other residents who are fully vaccinated
- Enjoying trips outside of the community without strict quarantine measures
- Participating in a larger variety of life enrichment programs and communal dining
- In addition, many of our communities are now conducting in-person tours and evolving our move-in protocols for fully vaccinated prospective residents.
We continue to carefully evolve our approach to resume operations as circumstances and applicable guidelines permit. We’re committed to helping our residents engage with friends and family and continue to enjoy the things the love most about living with us.
Remaining Strong in Preventative Measures
We have worked hard to ensure our preventative measures remain strong while allowing for our residents to safely get back to enjoying life. Across all of our communities, we continue to be aggressive in our approach to minimize the impact of Covid-19. In addition to adhering to the core principles of infection prevention and control, we have expanded our testing capabilities allowing us to more confidently welcome family members and guests into the community, and allowing our residents to enjoy time outside the community.
With over 95% of our residents fully vaccinated and the majority of our associates fully vaccinated we are confident in our continued ability in providing quality care and services despite the unpredictable and profound challenges of this pandemic. We continue to work hard to educate our community members about the added level of protection vaccines provide in keeping our communities and each other safe. We have taken the important step of introducing vaccinations as a required and essential job function for all associates. We expect all community associates to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no later than August 1, 2021 subject to applicable laws and Maplewood Senior Living policies.
Residents are required to complete a COVID-19 test before moving into the community and will be tested as clinically indicated. All new associates are tested before date of hire, and existing associates are part of our ongoing surveillance testing efforts using PCR and antigen tests.
For visitors who have not been fully vaccinated, have not received a negative test within the past 7 days, or have not been previously positive within the past 90-days (post recovery), a rapid antigen test may be offered
Please note: local health authorities, laws and regulations may impact and require changes to these operational guidelines.
