Keeping our Residents Safe, Healthy and Engaged
Our standards for safety and cleanliness have always been high, but during these times, we’ve instituted new protocols, products, and procedures to ensure the most comprehensive protections are in place to keep our residents and employees well. Rest assured that whether you live, work, or visit WEL, your safety is paramount to us, and we will continue to be vigilant in our protection processes.
Sanitizing and Cleaning:
- High touch surfaces including hallways, elevators, furniture in common areas, TV remotes, doorknobs, mailbox areas, community restrooms, and administrative areas are disinfected several times daily using FDA approved, hospital grade antimicrobial products.
- Hand Sanitizers are stationed at all entry points.
- Housekeeping staff don gowns, gloves, masks, and head and foot bonnets when cleaning, interchanging these protective items between each apartment.
- All communities have instituted disinfectant fogging by special equipment that is used daily to provide extra sanitation to high touch point surfaces.
- All employees are required to wear masks and to follow current CDC guidelines for protecting themselves and our residents, and will continue to follow mandated infection control protocols, to include use of personal protective equipment while interacting with others.
- Social distancing and masks/face coverings remain a requirement for all residents and visitors in the community. All communities have established new practices to assure that residents are properly distanced when meal service is in place, during activities, and any social interaction. Residents, employees, and visitors are pre-screened at community entrance points. WEL communities will also be installing Accushield Sign-In Kiosks at point of entry, which will enable contactless temperature checks. All screening questions will be logged into the Accushield system and a badge identifying visitors as screened will be printed out.
- All residents are now provided with a Clean Key, which will allow them to avoid touching surfaces that might contain germs. The Clean Key can be used to open doors, press buttons, and digitally sign on touchscreens. All residents are encouraged to use their Clean Key in community common areas and when off campus to limit contact with high touch surfaces.
