COVID-19 Update April 3, 2020

Dear Oak Meadows tenants and families on Friday, April 3, 2020


As our week comes to a close I want to update all of you on the status at Oak Meadows. We are very happy to be able to say we are still free of any cases of COVID-19 in our building.



Hopefully that means we are doing everything right. We know this is a difficult time for everyone and we will continue to do all we can to stay connected with each of you and to help keep you healthy.


We are excited to announce that we now have our internal TV station. Channel 51. Some of you may already have enjoyed Megan’s morning exercise on it! Watch for Megan’s updates on channel 2 for what will be scheduled on channel 51! We are very excited during this difficult time to offer this connection to each of you.



Sunday, April 5th begins Holy Week. Now that we have our channel 51 we will be able to broadcast our worship services. Here is the schedule for Holy Week that you can tune in to on channel 51:



Sunday, April 5th Palm Sunday service at 10am by Deb Veit (Your Palms will be in your black bags by Saturday evening!)



Thursday, April 9th Maundy Thursday service at 10am by Chaplain Carol



Friday, April 10th Good Friday service at 10am by Chaplain Carol



Sunday, April 12th Easter worship service at 10am by Chaplain Carol



You may have noticed staff are wearing masks now. We are doing this to protect our tenants. It is NOT because any of us are sick. We are not sick. We just want to put in place an additional level of protection for all of you.



Megan is happy to help arrange for families to skype with each of you but please know she has many roles right now so if possible to limit the zoom only sessions to less than 15 minutes and no more than 2 times per week.



I cannot continue to stress enough how important it is to continue to shelter in place, restrict visitors and stay away from the public. The better we do at this the sooner we will put an end to the spread of this virus.



Thank you for all of the families who have been so generous donating items to put in all of your black bags. We are so grateful for their generosity. And thank you for continuing to shelter in place.



~ Deb Veit, Executive Director
