Yesterday, Governor Tom Wolf made an announcement to expand social distancing efforts in several Pennsylvania counties.
To that end, we are also making additional changes to practices in all of our communities in an effort to minimize exposure to and transmission of COVID-19.
- All resident activities and worship services will be discontinued until further notice.
- Resident dining rooms will be closed by Monday, 3/16/2020 and we will be making provisions for staff to deliver meals to residents in their apartments.
- Other than medically necessary physician visits, we are strongly discouraging residents leaving their WEL community at this time. Staff will continue to bring in services, food, and supplies as needed.
We continue to implore employees to please use common sense and follow CDC guidelines outside their time at work, including social distancing, avoiding large events and gatherings, only leaving the house if necessary, and not going to the gym, stores or any public places that may results in exposure to the virus.
Please know we are enacting the above policies because the health and welfare of our residents guide everything we do.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding at this time.
