Dear Residents, Families and Staff,
We continue to monitor the number of changes to the CDC-COVID guidance including the increased need for use of masks while indoors.
In my last letter I was optimistic and believing that we would be moving toward removing the mask requirements within the community. The positivity rates in my previous letter were 1.1% for Pennsylvania and .8% for Montgomery County. In three weeks the Pennsylvania rate has risen to 5.4% and 4.2% for Montgomery County. These changes are alarming and have caused us to become less optimistic about relaxing the wearing of masks in our community.
The positivity rates increasing and the severity of those who are hospitalized has been primarily those individuals who are not vaccinated.
Wesley Enhanced Living (WEL) remains committed to the health and safety of our residents, employees, and visitors. WEL has mandated that all employees receive a completed series of the COVID -19 vaccine by September 1, 2021.
I would ask everyone who receives this memo to make an effort to keep encouraging those you know who have not received the vaccine to do their part! Please vaccinate, don’t procrastinate. It is obvious that vaccinations work! If a resident or staff member becomes vaccinated please notify us so that we can register your vaccination.
You can obtain your vaccine through the following link:
We will be continuing with the current status of visitation. Visitors and guests are allowed to dine in the Byberry Bistro and The Well. Visitors and guests are not permitted in the Cornerstone or Keystone Dining rooms at this time. Residents are allowed to reserve the Private Dining Room for a group to include up to six guests. Reservations are on a first reserved basis.
Thank you and stay WEL!
