Re: COVID update
Dear Oak Meadows staff, tenants and families,
We have thankfully had a quiet week. All COVID tests for Ponds tenants and Oak Meadows staff have come back negative. That is very good news.
We now have gone over 4 weeks with no positive COVID cases on our campus. Hooray! We will continue to do everything we can to keep our negative status. We will not be testing this week but will be testing again on March 3rd. I will update you at the end of this week.
Third COVID vaccination clinic will be:
March 11th from 9am to 3pm.
More info to follow.
We are continually monitoring the State recommendations for Senior Living communities to begin slowly opening back up for visitation and community activities. In March you will see some more activities added to the calendar. We will not be opening the dining room just yet. I will keep you posted as I learn more about recommendations for communal dining.
Please continue to follow our COVID policies at Oak Meadows for social distancing, wearing masks and frequent hand washing. The CDC and MDH guidelines are indicating that even with being vaccinated we will need to follow precautions until at least 75% of the population has been vaccinated.
I very much appreciate tenants and families who call first to check on visiting policies. Thank you for your patience as we wade our way through the trenches of this pandemic. As numbers in the county stay low we remain hopeful we can continue to move forward with our “reopen” of our community gatherings.
Deb Veit, Executive Director
